Campus Card

Campus Card
This photo ID is used for:
  • Accessing library services
  • Obtaining the TRUSU UPASS
  • Identification in a variety of ways on campus
  • Student discounts at merchants throughout Kamloops

We can prepare your card any time, but it can only be issued after your course registration is complete.

Two ways to get your Campus Card

So that we can have your TRU Campus Card ready when you arrive on campus, we ask that you send us your ID photo now. Your TRU Campus Card will be ready for pickup within one day at the TRUSU desk in the CAC. You will need to show one other form of photo ID in order to receive your card. You can access a list of acceptable forms of photo ID in the Cardholder Agreement.
