TWU's 150 year history

An old apple tree at TWU points to a historical past of farming on the land.

TWU was recently featured in the Langley Advance. The article highlighted the historic land that TWU sits upon. Read the article here.

The print article contained many archival photos from the TWU archives. The Trinity Western University archives are rich with campus history. There are approximately 5,000 photographs in the collection documenting the university from 1961 to present day. One can browse categories, look at old photographs of the campus, and hear and read the oral history of Canada's first Christian university. They can be found online at



Below is a selection of these archival photos.
