Innovation Spaces

Innovation spaces across Laurier campuses foster student-centered activities and meaningful collaboration with mentors, staff, faculty and community partners.

Innovation spaces can be reserved by students, faculty and staff for activities that align with Laurier's goals and values related to entrepreneurship and social innovation. To reserve a space, unless otherwise specified, complete the Innovation Spaces Booking Form.

Purpose Lab

The Purpose Lab is located in the Dr. Alvin Woods Building on Laurier's Waterloo campus. It was envisioned and designed as a space that would encourage all students at Laurier to come and collaborate on inspiring, changemaking ideas.

The Purpose Lab was made possible by generous donations from both the Wilfrid Laurier University Alumni Association and the Student Life Levy Fund.

Community Innovation Hub

The Community Innovation Hub is the home to our Brantford LaunchPad incubator.

Located in the heart of Laurier's Brantford campus in the Market-Darling Centre, this space provides our startups with workspace and resources to allow their companies to grow and succeed. The Community Innovation Hub is the go-to place on campus for those involved in entrepreneurship and social innovation. The space was designed to provide those who wish to gain and develop an entrepreneurial mindset with a collaborative and community driven workspace.

The Community Innovation Hub was made possible by donations from the Wilfrid Laurier University Alumni Association.
