Parents and Families

Supporting You and Your Student

As students adjust to university’s exciting personal and academic opportunities, parents and supporters can also expect to navigate new ways to help their students succeed in all areas of life.

We believe an engaged and supportive network is vital to student success. Your encouragement and advice will continue to play an integral role in your loved one’s Laurier experience.

From your student’s first campus visit to convocation day, these resources are here for you to stay informed and connected.

Parents of Prospective Students

Laurier is here to ensure that the support networks of prospective students always have access to the information they need throughout the application process.

The Explore our Campuses website is the best place to explore our university through information sessions, guided Brantford, Milton and Waterloo tours, and more.

“When I toured Laurier for the first time, I was blown away by how small and tight-knit the community was. Laurier showed me nothing but love and quickly became my home away from home.”

Kira P. (Psychology) from Richmond Hill, ON

Next Steps

As your future Golden Hawk prepares for this new and exciting beginning, we know you might still have a lot of questions. We've created a list of next steps that will help you learn more about the Laurier community and get all your questions answered.  


Graduating a Golden Hawk

All your love and support will lead your student to the finish line: graduation! At university, students need to apply to graduate. Our convocation section has all the information you need about the ceremonies, photos, receptions and more.

Watch parents of graduating Laurier students describe why the university is a great place for their students to learn and to grow.

Laurier Parents Campaign

As most postsecondary students and their families can attest, the financial investment of attending university is often more than the cost of tuition.

Donations from the Laurier Parents Campaign enriches the Laurier experience for not only your special student but also students across campus, both now and in the future. The Laurier Parents Campaign funds impactful projects and that would not be possible without your support and truly makes a difference in the lives of students, especially those in need of critical assistance.

We thank you for your generosity and support.
