Thompson Rivers University 50th Anniversary

VirtualOpen House

We’re not able to meet you in person, but we are still here for you. Register for our upcoming information sessions, find answers to common questions and get a sense of the TRU experience by hearing from students and alumni.

Stay and explore. And as we’ll be adding to this page over the next few weeks, be sure to come back often.

Campus tours are suspended for now, so we invite you to get a feel for our campus with a video tour, hosted by alumni Caitlin and Tim.

Thompson Rivers University campuses are on the traditional lands of the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc (Kamloops campus) and the T’exelc (Williams Lake campus) within Secwépemc'ulucw, the traditional and unceded territory of the Secwépemc people. Our region also extends into the territories of the Stat’imc, Nlaka’pamux, Nuxalk, Tsilhqot'in, Dakelh and Métis peoples.
