Living On-Campus in Langley
Trinity Western’s Langley campus is home to over 1000 students during the peak of our academic year (August – April) spread across a mix of single and double occupancy dorm, suite-style, and apartment housing. The health and safety of residents, their guests, and TWU staff is our priority and includes preventing the spread of communicable diseases like COVID-19.
Current Public Health Measures
The BC Center for Disease Control (BCCDC) strongly encourages students living in post-secondary housing to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and to review their vaccination records in general as this is a vital layer of protection available for preventing infection and serious illness. TWU residents are not required to provide proof of vaccination to qualify for a place in housing.
Regular cleaning of residence halls, including dorm bathrooms and common spaces, is done daily by our Campus Services Team. Extra cleaning supplies are accessible through Residence Life staff for self-isolating students living in dorms or suite-style shared housing.
Common Spaces & Social Gatherings
TWU Residence Halls have lounges and common spaces accessed by residents and their guests for informal socializing and formal events. Users of these shared spaces are expected to follow any/all posted guidelines and/or signage.
Residents on meal plans primarily access the Main Cafeteria. Other options include the Bookstore Café, Rooted, the Lower Cafeteria and Starbucks. Details on all TWU food services, as well as information on meal pick-up options for isolating students can be found on Sodexo’s TWU website.
Living on-campus is an amazing opportunity to build relationships with your peers. Every resident is responsible for contributing to a healthy, safe, and respectful community. As part of the Resident Agreement, all students living in housing commit to abiding by all public health orders in place. Failure to meet these expectations and others articulated in the Student Handbook may involve accountability which includes a graduated sanctions process.
Not feeling well?
The BC Center for Disease Control (BCCDC) has an excellent online resource to help you navigate what to do if you have any symptoms of illness. Based on your symptoms, you will receive recommendations around if you need to self-isolate, get tested or seek further health care provider follow-up.
