Guaranteed residence space for first-year students

If you currently live outside of Kamloops and attend TRU for the first time in a degree or diploma program of at least two years, you can live in residence — but be sure to apply by March 1. After that date, applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications open for the Fall semester on Feb. 1, and for the Winter semester on Oct. 1.
