Your Safety Responsibility: Update Your Contact Information 

As we enter the Fall Semester with an eye to keeping each other healthy and safe, the College is preparing for the possibility of contact tracing within our Community. All students are asked to ensure that they have up-to-date contact information within the Student Information System (https://langara.ca/login/), including a current phone number that we can reach you at and assist in contact tracing.  

By supplying your phone number, you will allow us to provide you with important health and safety information as quickly as possible. Please take a few minutes to update your information before the first day of classes 

IT Service Desk closure for Fall Semester 2020  

To limit in-person contact on campus, the IT Service Desk on campus will remain closed for the Fall Semester. If you have an account or IT issue IT will be providing online support through the IT Knowledge base, live chat, and online IT Help requests. Learn more and submit an IT Help request. This will assist us in directing the issue to the right person and resolving your issue quicker.
