Located in beautiful Vancouver, BC, Canada, Langara College started in 1965 as part of Vancouver Community College and in 1970, it opened its West 49th Avenue campus. On April 1, 1994, Langara College was established as an independent public college under the Provincial College and Institute Act. The College is also known as house of teachings, a name given to us by the Musqueam First Nation, on whose unceded traditional territory we are located. Today, Langara is one of BC's leading undergraduate institutions providing University Studies, Career Studies, and Continuing Studies programs and courses to more than 21,000 students annually.
In 1970, we opened our 49th Avenue campus and invited the community to make us their first choice for accessible, quality education.
Four decades later, Langara College is recognized as a leading undergraduate institution with a reputation for providing exceptional learning opportunities. Through the collective contributions of our outstanding faculty and staff, our programs and services continue to grow and innovate to meet the changing needs of our community.
Looking ahead, we anticipate ongoing success as more people make Langara their college of choice. We will continue to be an educational leader, setting the standard for higher learning, and supporting our broadening communities for years to come.
