Touring Laurentian University’s beautiful campus is a great way to get a feel for our institution. Taking part in a campus tour enables you to explore our classrooms, laboratories, residences and many student services. While we are still working hard to develop a system for virtual meetings between prospective students and faculty, we are delighted to announce that tours are now available.
