COVID-19: Campus Services and Spaces


TRU has suspended paid parking at the Kamloops campus until normal operations resume.

Students who have an annual premium or reserved permit will be contacted by the Parking Office to process a refund on the summer semester (May 1 to Aug. 31) portion of their permit fees. Permits remain valid until paid parking resumes.

Employees who have winter or annual permits through payroll deduction saw their deductions stop on April 1. For those with a permit for a reserved stall or one of the premium lots, their permits will remain valid until paid parking resumes. Please contact the Parking Office if you have any questions.
