UPDATE – May 6th

The T building reopened on May 6th. We want to remind students, staff and faculty that it is understandable to have residual reactions or distress upon re entering the T building given the events of April 1st. Counsellors are available for support for students as needed. Faculty and staff can contact Employee Assistance if you require support.

How to Book an Appointment

For an appointment, please phone the receptionist at 604.323.5221 or come to room B111 to make the booking in person. Drop-ins (short consultations of 10 to 15 minutes) are available daily during specific times to currently and/or previously enrolled students. Urgent and crisis appointments are also available. All students requesting Counselling appointments will be asked to complete a brief triage form and answer questions to determine need and urgency. Please note: Langara’s Counselling Services are in high demand and are a limited resource. This means there will be times when students may have to wait in order to see a Counsellor, especially during busy periods.

We also have a Counsellor located in the Indigenous Gathering Space (room C140).

Please bring your student identification card or picture ID when booking or attending appointments.
