The John Aird Centre was opened in 1988. It houses the Maureen Forester Recital Hall, Robert Langen Art Gallery, Theatre Auditorium, classrooms, and offices. It is named for John B. Aird, former lieutenant-governor of Ontario, and Chancellor of Wilfrid Laurier University from 1977 to 1985.

Wilfrid Laurier University is located in Waterloo, Ontario. It began in 1911 as the Evangelical Lutheran Seminary of Canada. In 1924 Waterloo College was established, providing courses in post-secondary education. In 1960 Waterloo College became Waterloo Lutheran University, and in 1973 changed its name to Wilfrid Laurier University. Laurier Brantford opened in 1999.
