The new home of the Lazaridis School of Business & Economics and the Department of Mathematics will cement our university’s standing as an institution that creates great Canadian business leaders. In June 2011, the provincial government invested $72.6 million to build the $103-million facility. Lazaridis Hall will provide Laurier’s students and professors with a vastly increased capacity for collaborative work. The extraordinary use of technology and the unique building design will make our business school unlike any other teaching facility in Canada. Lazaridis Hall has numerous naming opportunities and funding needs available from the naming of classrooms and student spaces to technology needs.
This $103-million project, scheduled to be completed in 2016, will allow the university to meet the growing demand for enrolment in Laurier’s business and math programs, and expand the university’s ability to deliver integrated and engaged learning opportunities to students at the local and global levels.
Investment in Lazaridis Hall is an investment in the prosperity of the region and the province and the tremendous potential of our students.
Housing the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics together with the Department of Mathematics in Lazaridis Hall will enhance the synergies between Laurier’s business and applied and financial math programs and serve as an iconic representation of the leadership role Laurier plays in Canadian business and Waterloo’s technology industry.
