Laurier Brantford is a satellite campus of Wilfrid Laurier University located in Brantford, Ontario. The main campus of the University is in Waterloo, Ontario. Laurier Brantford opened its doors in 1999 with a total of only 39 students in its inaugural year. By January 2015, there were 2,625 full-time students, and an unstated number of part-time students. At that time, some reduction was expected for the 2015/2016 year because Nipissing University would not be accepting new students to the joint concurrent (BA/BEd) education program with Laurier in September 2015.

  • Laurier Brantford is a satellite campus of Wilfrid Laurier University located in Brantford, Ontario. The main campus of the University is in Waterloo, Ontario. Laurier Brantford opened its doors in 1999 with a total of only 39 students in its inaugural year. By January 2015, there were 2,625 full-time students, and an unstated number of part-time students. At that time, some reduction was expected for the 2015/2016 year because Nipissing University would not be accepting new students to the joint concurrent (BA/BEd) education program with Laurier in September 2015. More specifically, Nipissing University had announced on November 16, 2014 that it would wind down its operations in the city in the wake of changes to funding for education programs. As of November 10, 2015, there were 622 such Laurier/Nipissing students. No new students were admitted for the 2015-16 academic year and the partnership will officially end once the last cohort of current students completes the program in 2019. Because of that change, Laurier Brantford was expecting about 125 fewer students to be on campus in September 2015. Still, the University was anticipating long-term growth in that city. "... Laurier's plans for growth are supported by its partnership with Conestoga College and significant investments in infrastructure that will continue to make Brantford an important destination for post-secondary education students," according to Brian Rosborough, senior executive officer, Brantford Campus. That optimism was warranted since by the June 1, 2015 deadline for confirmations the number of applicants who had accepted an offer of admission for first-year study in 2015-16 at Laurier Brantford rose by 24.1 per cent (or by 611 students) over the previous year. Laurier's main building is the Carnegie building on George Street. The campus has since expanded and has several academic and residence buildings. Research and Academic Centre, Wilfrid Laurier Student's Union, Grand River Hall, Lucy Marco Place, Post House, Wilkes House, the Odeon building and the Carnegie Building are all properties of Laurier Brantford and are used as academic theaters, residences, book store and a gym facility.
