Residence Life

Laurier Off-Campus University Students

The Laurier Off-Campus University Students (LOCUS) program functions as a "virtual residence", offering off-campus students all of the support and fun of residence life... without the building!

Upon joining LOCUS, you will be part of a community of peers who are also living off campus that is overseen by a senior student, or ’Off-Campus Advisor’ (OCA). Your OCA is responsible for getting you all of the information that you need during Orientation Week and throughout the year, also while planning regular events and socials for you and your community. Your OCA is your link to campus, the community, and LOCUS events such as our annual Casino Night, first year Formal, a visit to the ROM and events around the community.

LOCUS, however, focuses on more than just social events; they also provide personal and academic support through midterm and final study sessions, helpful information seminars throughout the year, and much more.
