How to register to use the Laurier Library.

Laurier students, faculty and staff

Students, faculty and staff are automatically registered with the Library, and can use their OneCard to access and borrow Library resources.

If you are having trouble signing in from off-campus, or accessing your Library account you can register your OneCard with the Library.

Online learning students without a OneCard can request one through the OneCard Office. The card will be mailed to you at which time you will be able to access the Library resources from home using the barcode on the OneCard as your login name and your last name as the password.

Cross registered students from UW or UG currently registered in a course at Laurier may obtain a Laurier ID card from the Laurier OneCard Office. Once you register your OneCard, you will have access to all of Laurier's resources. Your OneCard is generally activated within 24 hours.

Register or validate your OneCard

OneCard and alumni cards can be registered or verified in person at the Circulation Desk at Waterloo campusBrantford campus, or Kitchener campus, or online by emailing 

NOTE: It can take up to 2 business days (Monday-Friday) for the Library to activate off-campus access to library electronic resources.
