Study Spaces

Laurier’s Waterloo and Brantford campuses feature an abundance of study spaces to choose from. We have highlighted the best locations for you to drop-in or book a suitable place to study.


24-Hour Lounge

Located on the second floor of the Fred Nichols Campus Centre, the 24-hour lounge is equipped with computers, quiet study space, and group study rooms. If vending machines aren’t enough to tie you over, the lounge is conveniently located right above Wilf’s and the Terrace Food Court.

Lazaridis Hall

Take advantage of Laurier’s state-of-the-art facility, Lazaridis Hall. Whether you are looking for individual or group study space, Lazaridis Hall is equipped to accommodate your study style with over 400 seats and 60 tables throughout all four floors, including LH3104 and the atrium. Perk: Lazaridis Hall has an on-site café to fuel your study session; take a break and have a Byte.


With a computer lab, group study rooms, a lounge area, and an on-site café, the Laurier library offers amenities to suit all your studying needs. 

Accurately nicknamed silent seven, the seventh floor of the library is for those of you who prefer to study in silence. Crack open your textbook in a private study carol and keep it down – there are hawks studying.

The Graduate Commons, located on the third floor of the library, is where graduate students head for quiet study space and group discussion.

To reserve study space in the library, please consult the library study space tool.

Science Atrium

The Science Atrium is a bustling hub of students cramming for exams and offers a great spot for group discussion. Perk: Tim Hortons is only steps away.


The solarium is a top choice for students seeking a quiet study space; with comfy furniture and a great view, what more could you ask for?


24-Hour Lounge

Your Laurier OneCard provides you with 24-hour access to the Student Centre lounge spaces and multi-purpose room. This study space is perfect for night hawks studying into the early morning hours.

Digital Library

The Grand River Hall basement is home to our new Digital Library and offers access to a number of computers, quiet study space, and group meeting rooms.

Brantford Public Library

The Brantford Public Library houses all Laurier Brantford holdings and the recently renovated third floor provides access to a number of electronic journals and quiet study spaces.

Commuter Lounge

The Carnegie Building is where you will find the commuter lounge, a study space designated to students who are encouraged to take their eyes of the road and focus on their lecture notes. Perk: You might meet students commuting from the same destination; arrange a carpool and save on travel expenses.
