I couldn’t be happier with my decision. I had many opportunities on campus, largely thanks to the small classes. The connections you make can propel you into whatever future you want if you put in an honest effort and work hard."

After completing my undergraduate degree at TRU, it was an easy decision to return for a law degree. I got to know members of the community while playing volleyball for the WolfPack, so I knew exactly how welcoming and supportive Kamloops is of its students.”

Williams Lake

Our second campus is located in Williams Lake, a growing city located in the beautiful Cariboo Chilcotin region, about three hours northwest of Kamloops.

Small class sizes mean you get to know your instructors in programs like Applied Sustainable Ranching, Practical Nursing, select trades and more.

TRU Williams Lake

Thompson Rivers University campuses are on the traditional lands of the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc (Kamloops campus) and the T’exelc (Williams Lake campus) within Secwepemcúlucw, the traditional and unceded territory of the Secwépemc. The region TRU serves also extends into the territories of the St’át’imc, Nlaka’pamux, Nuxalk, Tŝilhqot'in, Dakelh, and Syilx peoples.

During my first tour of campus, we stopped at Cplul’kw’ten and they had cupcakes. I’m not sure if they were there for us or if we just stopped in on the right day, but we ended up staying awhile and I just really felt welcomed. Cplul’kw’ten helped me find balance my first few years at TRU."
