Visitor FAQ

Is proof of vaccination required to visit campus?

No, proof of vaccination is not required for any campus visitors.

How do I prepare for a safe and enjoyable visit to TRU?

Safety is our top priority. Employees, students, and members of the public are no longer required to wear face masks on our campuses. However, TRU is a mask friendly environment, and we support your choice should you choose to wear a mask. Prior to arriving on campus, all guests should self-assess for symptoms and, if you are feeling unwell, we ask that you cancel your visit and rest. There will be a future opportunity to visit our campus!

Currently the campus tour is primarily outdoors, so please keep in mind the Kamloops climate and dress appropriately.

When should I arrive at TRU for my visit?

Please arrive on campus no more than 10 minutes before your scheduled tour. You will meet your tour at The Welcome Centre, 850 Sk’lep Way. View our campus map here

Yes, there is a possibility that you could be grouped with other small families/groups. If this is a concern for your group, please reach out to the Future Students Office and we can discuss other possible arrangements.
