Guided Tour

Join the Future Students Team for a close-up look at the TRU Kamloops campus!

Book a tour for an individual or family

Summer campus tours run Monday to Friday, at 10 am and 2 pm, excluding statutory holidays. Tours last 60 to 90 minutes and take place mostly outside.

Your tour guide will be a current TRU student or a recent graduate, and as you walk around campus, you’ll learn about our history, programs, services and more. Please note: residence is not included in the campus tour (see other options below).

Parking: You can park in all-day lots for $5, or in metered lots for $1 per half-hour.

Cancellation: Should you need to cancel your tour, email us at recruitment@tru.ca or call us at 250-828-5006.

 Group tours

Want a custom tour for your group? Give us at least two weeks' notice and we'll customize a tour for you. If necessary, we can help facilitate accommodation, meals and other activities. Please email recruitment@tru.ca to schedule your group tour.

 Other options

Tours of residence

We have two on-campus housing options — TRU Residence and McGill Housing. If you would like a tour of one of them, you need to book it separately from your campus tour.

Specialized tours

If you would like a tour that focuses on a specific faculty, school or program, let us know and we'll do our best to accommodate you.

If you would like to book a tour at a time other than posted above or on a weekend, please email us at recruitment@tru.ca and we would be happy to accommodate your needs.

Open House

Campus tours are also offered during our Open Houses. This is a great opportunity to visit campus, attend information sessions, meet faculty, and envision your future at TRU.
