Study Spaces

Updated April 2, 2021. 

Bookable study spaces will be available as of Wednesday, Feb. 24.

The provincial governement has lifted the province’s stay-at-home order for Waterloo Region and Brant County Public Health units, which have been returned to Red and Orange zones respectively. 

See the announcement, Laurier to resume some in-person operations Feb. 22 following provincial shutdown lift.​​

Bookable Spaces

We recognize the unique challenges faced by students at this time. To help support student academic success, the university has opened study spaces at its Brantford and Waterloo campuses.

It is important to note that this is a pilot program. The university’s ability to provide ongoing access to study space will depend on every member of the Laurier community doing their part to stop the spread of COVID-19 by following the safety protocols.

Each afternoon the spaces will be taken offline to allow for deep cleaning; these times will not be bookable.
