At Laurier, we offer an exceptional student-centred experience with resources for every dimension of wellness. We provide students with seamless, coordinated care and collaborative services that support academic achievement, health and well-being and personal growth

It's important for your student to strengthen their self-advocacy skills during their time in university. Familiarize yourself with the resources available so you can help your student identify the resources they can access to succeed.

Transition Programming

Your student's first year at university will no doubt be a journey of many new experiences. We know you are eager to continue to support them through each new milestone.

Laurier 101 is an exceptional transition support program also that will help your student adjust to all these changes quickly and easily.

Gain insight into the opportunities and challenges that your student may encounter in their first year and learn ways to support your student and yourself during this transition. Register for "Helping Your Hawk Soar" to attend this session.

Moving into Residence

Many students are excited about the idea of living away from home and living in residence. Living in residence is an opportunity for them to learn and grow, and gain an appreciation for all you do for them on a daily basis. Our "New Residence Students" webpage will have all the info you need on what to pack and when to move in.

Dean of Students Office

The Dean of Students office helps family members who have concerns about a student's safety or well-being, or are looking for assistance with connecting the student to resources or supports. Due to privacy regulations, the Dean of Students office may be limited in what we can share; however, we are happy to hear your concerns and will take appropriate steps as needed.

In extreme cases where the university is concerned for the imminent safety of a student, the emergency contact listed on our students' file will be contacted by Special Constable Service.

Privacy and Confidentiality

We protect the personal privacy of our students in compliance with Ontario’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA), and have answers to your questions about student privacy.
