Are you a new to snəw̓eyəɬ leləm̓ Langara student and have questions about student orientation? We have answers.
New Student Orientation is a full-day, interactive, in-person event designed for you to make friends, meet different staff and instructors, learn about important resources, services, involvement opportunities, and start to build your community before your first day of classes.
All fall 2022 Orientations will be held in person.
New Student Orientation will provide you with a strong foundation to begin your Langara Journey. Students who participate in New Student Orientation share that they feel more connected to the College, more prepared to start their first semester, are more aware of different campus resources and services, and more confident in navigating their way around campus.

All new-to-Langara students are eligible to attend New Student Orientation.
If you are an international student, Falcons varsity athlete, or a student enrolled in the Langara School of Management Post-Degree Diploma or Langara School of Management Diploma/Bachelor of Business Administration program, you are required to attend a mandatory, program-specific orientation.
Orientation programming is designed specifically for students to meet and connect with other students, therefore we recommend that your family members do not attend. However, we encourage your parents and supporters to attend the Parents and Supporter Orientation session to learn more about the College, and gain a greater understanding of the resources and opportunities available to students and what to expect as they support you during your first term at Langara.
All new students admitted to Langara and who have registered for fall classes will receive an email invitation to register for Orientation.
Click here if you have registered, but did not receive an email invitation.
If you registered for the wrong Orientation date, please contact email@example.com before trying to register for another session. A member of the Orientation Planning team will respond within 2 business days.
Newly admitted international students are encouraged to visit the "Orientation Resources" page, created by Langara Global.
Visit the Orientation Resources page to download some key resources to get you set up for success in your first term, including:
- Yourself! Our orientation events are designed so that you don't need to bring anything with you.
- Dress for the weather. Orientation events will be held outside and inside. Vancouver weather can be very unpredictable, so wear clothing that you will be comfortable in different temperatures.
Students attending New Student Orientation (September 1 or September 2) will be provided with a BBQ lunch (including vegetarian options).
