Tour Schedule

TRU is closed on Friday, April 18 and Monday, April 21 for Easter Long Weekend, as well as Monday, April 28 for a Counsellor Conference. Please use the self-guided tour to explore campus if you plan to visit.

We offer tours on request weekdays at 1pm. Other times and days will be considered whenever possible. Advanced notice is appreciated. Please notify us of any special requests that you or your group may have so we are able to best accommodate you.

Types of Tours

Group Tours - School groups are welcome on campus! We prefer a minimum of two weeks’ notice for group tours as our team will customize a tour for you, and if necessary, help facilitate accommodation, meals and other activities. From September to January, most of our team is off-campus visiting high schools and there is limited time for group tours. Advance notice and flexibility are greatly appreciated.

Individual/Family Tours - All interested high school students and their families, as well as the general public, are invited to take a tour of TRU. Coming to TRU this year? Take a tour to get familiar with the campus before you arrive!

What to expect

  • Length of tour is approximately one hour (depending on size of group); wear walking shoes.
  • A large portion of the tour is outdoors
  • Your tour guide will be a current student or recent graduate of TRU
  • As you walk around the campus and through many of the buildings, you will learn more about the institution’s history, program offerings, campus services, and other interesting facts and general information.
