Student Clubs

Make the most out of your Laurier experience by joining a club. With more than 250 student-led clubs and associations – and the ability to start your own – there are endless opportunities to find a group that shares your interests.

Get started by using your Laurier network credentials to sign on to The Perch, the online hub for all Students’ Union clubs and faculty associations. On The Perch, you can explore active clubs, learn how to start a club, get event approval, and more.

Note: Graduate students can join Students’ Union undergraduate clubs, but they cannot be part of the executive team or benefit from the budget provided. This is because these budgets are allocated from undergraduate fees.

Why You Should Join a Club

  • Meet new people: Getting involved with a club or association is a great way to meet new people, and it can be easier to make friends when you start with common interests.
  • Explore and expand your interests: Club members will bring their unique perspectives to the table – yours included! Sharing your ideas with others will help you explore and expand your interests.
  • Have fun: Partake in gaming challenges, watch Raptors games, tag teammates in Laser Quest…. This is just a small sampling of activities that you can be a part of when you join a group.
  • Gain co-curricular experience: If you’re looking to gain some real-world experience, look no further. Many clubs and associations have activities that can be added your Experience Record.

Why You Should Join a Faculty Association

Faculty associations support the bettering of both your academic and your social experience at Laurier. Joining a faculty association is a great way to not only meet like-minded students in similar programs, but also to leave your mark on the university’s student experience. Faculty associations are often the bridge between the faculties and the Students’ Union.
