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, a triple gymnasium with seating for 2,500 spectators, an aerobics room, dance studio, multipurpose room and our 11,000 square-foot fitness centre. The fitness centre houses the full range of cardio machines, weight training machines and free weights and also 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, rugby 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.

Alumni field in the heart of campus is an international regulation soccer and recreational field with state-of-the-art field turf. The field is surrounded by natural grass berms and landscaping, creating an amphitheatre-like environment. The field provides programming space from casual recreation to intramural sports to inter-university sports.

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.
