Get to know Laurier's student website

Welcome to Laurier! Whether it’s your first year here or you’re returning to campus, Laurier’s student website, students.wlu.ca, has all the student-specific information you need under one digital roof. Take a few minutes to explore the website, customize your My Laurier tab and stay current with what’s going on at your campus. Oh, and please visit often – we’re happy to have you here.

Get Personal: Using the My Laurier Tab

Make students.wlu.ca 100% yours by customizing the tools available in the My Laurier tab to reflect your program, interests and academic needs. You’ll find the My Laurier tab in the top right of your screen. It allows you to:

  • View your class schedule by term.
  • Set five Quick Links to webpages you visit often.
  • Customize the calendar feed to show events hosted by departments or areas that you’re interest in.

To access your My Laurier tab and its settings, log in with your @mylaurier username and password.

Set It and Forget It

The first time you log in to students.wlu.ca, you will go through a simple four-step profile creation process. This will help you set your preferences including home campus, level of study and customized quick links. For example, once you set your campus location, any content related to your campus will display first, including any pages that contain information by campus.

Because the site saves your preferences, the information you need is easier to find when you return. You can always edit or update your preferences and quick links in the My Laurier tab and selecting Manage.

Anytime you are signed into students.wlu.ca, you can go directly into your Webmail, My Learning Space and Library accounts without having to re-enter your credentials.

Get Your Go On: Mobile and Search Friendly

The student website has robust and intuitive search function that finds the relevant and up-to-date information you want when you want it: fast. Even if you’re on the go, the student website goes with you.

The mobile-friendly and responsive design makes it easy to access student-specific information from a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

What You Need to Know

Each month, the student site features a range of articles (like this one!) on the homepage under the “What you need to know” heading that highlight timely topics or helpful reminders. From important dates to tips for student life, you’ll find plenty of useful information. Have a pressing question or idea for an article? Get in touch with Laurier’s Web Services team at webservices@wlu.ca.

Great campus stories and important announcements can also be found throughout the site, both on the homepage and most academic program pages. Set your academic program as one of your Quick Links to stay on top of what’s happening in your area.
