There is reserved seating for disabled, elderly and other guests who have mobility impairments and one or two accompanying guests. Arrive early to find suitable parking and seating.

Frames, memorabilia and souvenirs

The Bookstore in the Campus Activity Centre carries frames and other graduation memorabilia. You can also shop for TRU souvenirs.

Roses for grads

In June, only fresh roses are available for purchase on the day of the ceremony. The TRU Alumni Association uses the proceeds from the sale of roses for student programs. These include mentoring that matches employers with students. Pre-order to make sure you don't miss out.
