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 and 2018, 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.
