Make sure your event runs as smooth as possible. Here are some pointers to help you plan your event at Langara College:

1. Plan well in advance 
It can take some time before receiving approval for your event so, plan accordingly. Make sure to submit your request at least four weeks (28 days) before your preferred booking date. Failure to provide adequate notice means your request may be not be fulfilled due to limited resources. Please note that you will still have to book any catering directly through the Chartwells website. Try to make your event as sustainable as possible by following our zero-waste checklist.

2. Have a budget
Some services will have an additional cost associated with them. Make sure that you have approved budget to cover the costs for your event. 

3. Check if the venue you want is available
You can check if an event space is available by viewing the room booking calendar:

4. Fill out a floor plan
Your floor plan should be filled out at least four weeks in advance of your event date and can be submitted through your event request form or to events@langara.caPlease be mindful that Facilities employees work hours is 7:00 am–3:30 pm, Monday to Friday. As a result, resources may not be available for weekend requests, and it will be difficult to accommodate last minute furniture setup or layout changes on the day of the event. If you require assistance on the day of your event, please indicate this on your floor plan.
