Laurier's Waterloo campus Library is a hub of activity at the west end of campus, adjacent to Martin Luther University College and Dr. Alvin Woods Building. Receiving well over half a million visits each academic year, the Library contains approximately 800 group and individual study spaces; public-use computers, printers and scanners; and over one million printed books and archival items. The Library is also home to a thriving art gallery, a dedicated graduate commons study area, and the Archives and Special Collections.

Building Access

For overnight snowfalls, Laurier snow removal starts at 6 am. The Library ramp and stairs should be shoveled and salted by 7 am. The crew then moves on to other parts of the campus. If more snow removal is needed, then the cycle is continued.

If the handrail has ice due to freezing rain, it will not be scraped. If this is a barrier for you, please contact the Library and we will notify the snow removal crew.


Please visit the Grand River Transit website for route and schedule information

Bicycle Racks

Metal bench, and four bike racks. Each rack is a separate metal post with rounded bar. In this picture there are no bikes. Behind them is a concrete barrier that runs along side of the ramp for entering the library
  • Three benches are near the bottom of the ramp


We recommend you park in lots #4 or #20. There are also five accessible parking spots are available near the front of the Library. Please view the Laurier parking website for more information.

Lost and Found

Lost and Found items are kept near the User Services Desk on the ground floor of the Library. Patrons may claim an item by accurately describing the item, and where they lost it to staff at the User Services Desk. For valuable items, patrons are also asked to sign and date a claim form.
