Laurier, in partnership with Conestoga College, is committed to extending Laurier’s high-quality academic and student experience along the Toronto-Waterloo Innovation Corridor to the fast-growing community of Milton – giving students from the Halton Region the chance to study close to home. As a multi-campus, multi-community university, Laurier is known for offering unique programs that make each campus its own, while retaining the essence of Laurier’s strong community culture that binds us together.
Evolving over multiple phases, Laurier’s new campus will be part of a comprehensively planned neighbourhood in west Milton, encompassing 400 acres of land alongside the Niagara Escarpment. With plans for postsecondary education along with residential, commercial and recreational uses, this future community is the perfect site for a growing campus.
Beginning as early as fall 2019, students will have the option to pursue Laurier degree and non-degree courses in the existing Milton Education Village (MEV) Innovation Centre. The MEV Innovation Centre is an ecosystem of emerging talent and home of HalTech, the region’s tech accelerator, and houses classrooms, student services, study spaces and more. Our partner, Conestoga College, will also have a presence in the centre. Course details will be announced in early 2019.
During its second phase of development, Laurier will begin planning and design for a new building in the Milton Education Village. With the development of its first permanent Milton campus building, Laurier plans to offer students sector-leading programs in science, technology, mathematics and the arts, along with plans for complementary engineering undergraduate programs and research collaboration opportunities. This enhanced STEAM programming will serve the students of the future – ones that are real-world ready.
The Milton Innovation Centre is accessible by Milton's transit system, GO Transit, 400-series highways and an active transportation network, making it easy to get to your classes and other amenities. There is onsite parking available for those driving.
Milton is a rapidly growing, vibrant community, where optimism meets opportunity. The mid-sized town is home to the youngest population in Ontario and is in close proximity to Ontario’s 401 highway and GO Transit. With quaint bistros, arts and athletics facilities, 64 parks and an innovation centre, Milton offers a balanced student lifestyle in a diverse community.
It's hard to explain what it means to be a Golden Hawk without meeting us in person.
No matter which of our campuses you tour, once you come you'll immediately feel this "sense of community" we keep talking about.
