Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Laurier's One Market building is a redesign of the Market Square property in Brantford. Purchased from the City of Brantford in 2014, the former shopping mall will be transformed into new academic, cultural and service spaces to support continued growth at the Brantford campus.

As a net new addition of space, One Market has the potential to double Laurier’s footprint in Brantford. The Brantford campus has a current enrolment of about 3,000 full-time and part-time undergraduate and graduate students. Two major phases of redevelopment will prepare the university to reach its next milestone for enrolment growth to 5,000 students and a further, future milestone of 8,000 students.

The mandate for One Market reflects Laurier’s priorities, including:

  • A campus that is fully integrated into downtown Brantford;
  • A respect for the history of the area and the community;
  • Support for the expansion of postsecondary education for Laurier and its postsecondary partners, including Conestoga College; and
  • To continue the remarkable revitalization of downtown Brantford that has resulted from the long and productive collaboration between the university and the city.
