Campus Card

Campus Card

The Campus Card is not a requirement, but it is an option if you’d like another form of identification. Find information below on how to obtain one if you are interested.

Although the Campus Card was requested by some Kamloops merchants to access student discounts, the new BC Transit UMO app can be used to provide proof that you are a registered student.

We can prepare your card any time, but it can only be issued after your course registration is complete.

How to get your Campus Card

  1. Take a selfie or profile photo of yourself.
  2. Log into your myTRU or TRU email account.
  3. Send email to with your full name and TRU ID in the subject line and attach your jpg file.
  4. You will receive an email when your card is ready.
  5. Campus cards can be picked up at the TRU Print Shop in Old Main (OM 1206) during regular business hours.
  6. You will need to show your email confirmation that your card is ready AND photo ID in order to receive your card.
