Residence Buildings

Waterloo Campus Buildings

With 15 residence buildings hosting about 2,800 residents, Laurier offers a wide variety of living accommodations and each residence offers a unique experience for incoming students.

Our residence buildings are comprised of both dormitory-style accommodations and apartment-style accommodations. The main difference between dormitory-style and apartment-style residences is the kitchen. Dormitory style residences have limited shared cooking facilities, where apartment-style residences each have a kitchen.

All rooms assigned to students come fully furnished and include utilities and Internet services. A residence life area coordinator and a team of residence life dons manage each building.

Brantford Campus Buildings

Your year in residence promises to be one of the most memorable and rewarding aspects of your university career – a unique and valuable experience that will serve as a special part of your postsecondary education.

All of our residences in Brantford are apartment-style, which means you have a kitchen in your unit so you can prepare your own meals. Our residences are co-ed and 80% feature single rooms.

Residence custodial staff cleans the hallways and provides general maintenance, but you are responsible for cleaning your bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathrooms. Cleaning amenities such as a mop, bucket, broom and dustpan are provided for each suite, and each building has shared vacuums you can borrow when needed.

In addition to the standard television cable outlet available in each suite, wireless high-speed Internet access is available in both the bedrooms and common areas, and is included in your residence fees.
