Wilfrid Laurier University Archives
The University Archives is the repository for historic records of the Wilfrid Laurier University and its predecessors Waterloo Lutheran University and Waterloo College, as well as the Waterloo Lutheran Seminary. The materials document student life, research, teaching and learning, the physical campus, and the administration of the university.
Laurier Special Collections is the library's research collection of primary documents. The collection focuses on: the Environment (with an emphasis on water resources, Canada's North, and biosphere reserves in Canada); the history of Lutheranism in Canada; and the history of Kitchener-Waterloo.
The Archives is open Monday-Friday, 10:00-4:30. Researchers are encouraged to contact the Archives in advance of their visit.
The Archives and Special Collections Reading Room is open to the public and welcomes researchers from the Laurier and wider communities.
