Virtual Academic and Online Learning Support Now Available 

Your academic success is important to us. We now have regularly scheduled virtual drop-in office hours where you can connect with our Learning Support Team. 

  • Meet one-on-one with a learning support team member to get help with academic and online learning questions, or 
  • Drop-in to our Community Café to ask questions, discuss strategies and resources to help with taking exams online, and more. 

Visit us at Virtual Learning Support for more information or email your questions to learningsupport@langara.ca

U-Pass BC Program 

U- Pass BC Program Post-secondary institutions and student associations (including Langara and the Langara Student Union) have worked with TransLink to temporarily suspend the U-Pass BC program as of May 1st. The U-Pass BC Program is offered to students under agreements in place between TransLink, participating colleges/universities and their associated student societies. Students pay for this pass through mandatory student fees.

This means that no U-Passes will be issued to Langara students taking classes this summer. Students will not be charged the $164 U-Pass fee normally applied at registration. TransLink is continuing discussions with post-secondary institutions and student association representatives about potential refunds for students not using their April passes.  

Students not needing their April U-Pass are encouraged not to use it. Once we have an update, we will inform our Community, and will post this on our website. 

If you have any questions about Langara’s U-Pass BC program, please contact upass_admin@langara.ca.

The medical clinic at Langara College is available for booked appointments Monday - Friday. We will continue offering healthcare services to the Langara community.
