The Langara campus officially opened in October 1970, welcoming over 4,500 students to the new campus. 2019 will be a big year for Langara College as we celebrate our 49th year of providing accessible, high-quality, post-secondary education on West 49th Avenue in Vancouver, and our 25th year as an independent institution.
Langara’s anniversary campaign, Beyond 49 will celebrate our past milestones and achievements, engage our alumni and community, and raise funds to support our students and future initiatives at the College.
The campaign will officially launch on Wednesday, October 10 and below are a few ways you can get involved:

We will kick-off our anniversary celebrations and launch the campaign with two special events for our campus community (employees, students, and retirees). Join us as we walk part of the original 1970 Great Trek along Cambie Street between 41st Avenue and 49th Avenue to Langara. The trek will finish at the gymnasium meeting our campus community for the Beyond 49 Pep Rally and Campaign Launch.
Share your story
As part of our 49th anniversary, we want to celebrate the people within our community. There are so many unique stories at Langara and the anniversary is an opportunity for us to share these stories. There are couples who met at Langara, friendships that continue beyond our campus, memories from the classroom to convocation, alumni who found their path and passions, and instructors who have helped change the lives of their students. We have so much to be proud of at Langara, share your story for inclusion on our anniversary website.
