About the Library

Kwantlen Polytechnic University is located in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. We have four campus library locations: Langley, Richmond, Surrey and KPU Tech in Cloverdale. The library provides a wide array of print and electronic resources, designed to assist students with course studies and to encourage self-directed research and learning. Library resources are available to students, staff and faculty, as well as to community borrowers.
