Laurier’s Waterloo Campus

waterloo_campus_quad

Our Waterloo campus is located in the thriving, culturally diverse community of Kitchener-Waterloo (KW). The campus is located in the heart of the city and is down the street from the University of Waterloo – this “university town” has great dining, recreational and entertainment options for students.

Located one hour west of Toronto with a population of about 365,000, KW is small enough to be safe and easy to get around, yet large enough to support the amenities and culture of a big city.

Canada’s Leading High-Tech Region

KW is part of Waterloo Region, which is home to the largest grouping of technology companies in North America outside California. Our community has a reputation for innovation and it is where tech giant BlackBerry got its start. Communitech, an internationally recognized incubator that helps tech companies start, grow and succeed, calls Waterloo home, as do Desire2Learn, Sandvine, Open Text, Google, Oracle, Intel, McAfee, Sybase, NCR Corporation, Electronic Arts and Christie Digital.
