Notes
The original Student Union Building, erected in 1962, housed student offices, the Cord Weekly, a lounge, and the Dean of Students' office. When the new Student Union Building (The Fred Nichols Campus Centre) opened in 1970, the original building was transformed into the Educational Services Centre, containing offices, Education Services, Counselling, Health Services, Student Awards, and the Housing Office.

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 it became Waterloo Lutheran University, composed of Waterloo University College and Waterloo Lutheran Seminary. In 1973 Waterloo Lutheran University changed its name to Wilfrid Laurier University. In September 1999 Laurier Brantford opened in Brantford, Ontario.
