Wilfrid Laurier University - Brantford Campus

Laurier's Brantford Campus

Our Brantford Campus has quickly established itself as a dynamic institution offering a unique combination of liberal arts and professional programs.

Since 1999, the Brantford campus has transformed the downtown core of the City of Brantford into what is now a thriving student community. The campus is home to more than 3,000 students and is 1 of the fastest growing university campuses in Ontario. If there is 1 thing our students and alumni agree on, it's that Laurier offers a fantastic overall university experience. That's why in 2017, out of all undergraduate students surveyed across Canada, Laurier ranked their student satisfaction the highest in the Maclean's University Rankings.

We offer a diverse number of programs on our Brantford Campus, including: Community Health, Criminology, Digital Media & Journalism, English, Health Administration, History, Human Rights & Human Diversity, Indigenous Studies, Labour Studies & Career Development, Law & Society, Psychology, Social & Environmental Justice, as well as Youth & Children's Studies.
