At TRU you will find small class sizes, personal attention and practical learning experiences in every program – all on a beautiful campus located in the Secwepemc territory of Kamloops BC. We are committed to creating an environment that encourages students to develop a network of supports and friendships.

TRU offers a variety of services that support students through their social, personal, and academic experiences. This support is accessible to all students and it is often the key to their success. We invite and encourage students to take advantage of these services.
