Campus Tours

Welcome Future Thunderwolves!


Students hanging out at an orientation campus tour and taking in the new experiencesWe look forward to welcoming you and your guest to our Thunder Bay and Orillia campus for an in-person campus tour. As the health and safety of our future students, guests and our community is important to us, we will continue to adjust our plans in accordance with any public health guidelines as required, in order to keep our Lakehead University campuses safe.

We are committed to following the direction of the government and recommendations from the Thunder Bay District Health Unit and the Simcoe-Muskoka District Health Unit.
