TRU Orientation

Winter Orientation will take place on Friday, January 11th, 2019 from 11:00am-12:30pm on Student Street, Old Main. There will be numerous booths set-up with resources, support and services available at TRU. 

You will learn about the people, places, supports and resources available on campus. You will meet lots of other students, staff and faculty — some new and some not-so-new — as you explore your university.  Throw in some food and prizes and you've got a fun-filled, jam-packed day to remember.

TRU Orientation is not just for first-year students — it is for all new-to-TRU students. If you are a graduate, mature or transfer student, you are welcome to join.

What to expect on January 11th

  • Visit the resource fair on Student Street, Old Main from 11:00am - 12:30 pm.
  • Grab a FREE t-shirt, hot chocolate and cookies from the Welcome Booth on Student Street.
  • Get a resource fair passport from the Welcome Booth, visit 4 different booths at the resource fair (get a stamp or signature) and you can enter a draw for gift cards and TRU swag.


Students are asked to park in TRU parking lots. If you haven't ordered your parking pass from Parking Services it may be a good idea. Otherwise parking for the day is varied depending on the lot.
