Wilfrid Laurier University Part Time, Online and Continuing Studies Calendar - Fall/Winter 2006/2007
Canadian Excellence

Athletic Complex and University Stadium and Sports Centre

Laurier's recreational and personal fitness facilities are among the best in Canada. Our Athletic Complex includes an Olympic-length swimming pool, two squash courts, two outdoor tennis courts, a triple gymnasium with seating for 2,500 spectators, an aerobics room, dance studio and multipurpose room. In the fall of 2005 we opened our new 11,000 square-foot fitness centre with the full range of cardio machines, weight training machines and free weights. The centre also houses our dedicated cycling room for spinning classes.  The recreation program includes competitive, instructional, drop-in and co-educational activities.

The Stadium and Sports Centre includes a lighted, artificial turf athletic field that is home to the Golden Hawks for football, soccer and lacrosse. The stadium seats 5,500 and has a six-lane, 400-metre track and a gymnasium. All facilities are available for booking by the Laurier community and the general public.

All part-time students have prepaid for athletic and recreational services memberships as part of the Comprehensive Student Services Fee and need only pay for courses or classes that require instruction.
