Opening Reception Social

Welcome to the OACUHO 2024 Spring Conference! We will be gathering in Laurier's Lazaridis building to connect with new faces, re-connect with old friends, and kick off our conference together. Following the opening reception folks are welcome to join us in the Turret, one of our dynamic spaces on campus, for music bingo and some light refreshments. 


Tuesday Night Social

On Tuesday evening, conference attendees are invited to Maxwell's Concerts and Events hall located just around the corner from King Street Residence. We'll enjoy an evening of live music and socializing together after a long day of learning! 



The OACUHO banquet is a chance for us to come together and enjoy a meal, celebrate our OACUHO award winners, and reflect on the time we have spent together. We are excited to come together and recognize members of our association who have made a significant impact in further the housing profession. Hosted this year at Whistle Bear Gold Course, we hope you join us for an evening of reflection and celebration, followed by an open dance floor! 


Optional Social – St. Jacob’s Market & Country Wagon Tour - Thursday June 20

Our Country Wagon Tours are an hour long, leaving from the St. Jacobs Farmer’s Market and returning. An antique John Deere tractor and people mover/wagon will take you out into the country, driving through the beautiful farming landscape of Woolwich Township, which is rich in Mennonite heritage. On our tour, we drive through Martin’s Family Fruit Farm orchard, past an Old Order Mennonite school and rural Mennonite farms. A local tour guide will be on board speaking about the Mennonite culture, their way of life, farming in their culture, and Mennonite history. Are you curious about the Mennonites? This is your opportunity to ask, and our guide is happy to answer any questions you may have.

 Please note the following regarding the optional social:

  • You will need your own transportation to St Jacob’s Market (about 5km away from Laurier)
  •  The cost of the Wagon ride will be covered
  • There are limited spots available!
