Visitors to our campus are always welcome. We provide prospective students, applicants and their families and friends, high school counsellors and teachers, and anyone else interested in post-secondary education with a friendly introduction to the university.
We offer tours by request Monday to Friday, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., excluding statutory holidays.
Your tour guide will be a current TRU student or a recent graduate, and as you walk around campus, you’ll learn about our history, programs, services and more. Please note: residence is not included in the campus tour (see other options below).
Parking: You can park in all-day lots for $5, or in metered lots for $1 per half-hour.
Cancellation: Should you need to cancel your tour, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 250-828-5006.
Want a custom tour for your group? Give us at least two weeks' notice and we'll customize a tour for you. If necessary, we can help facilitate accommodation, meals and other activities. Please email email@example.com to schedule your group tour.
Tours of residence
We have two on-campus housing options — TRU Residence and McGill Housing. If you would like a tour of one of them, you need to book it separately from your campus tour.TRU On-Campus Housing
If you would like a tour that focuses on a specific faculty, school or program, let us know and we'll do our best to accommodate you.
If you would like to book a tour at a time other than posted above or on a weekend, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be happy to accommodate your needs.
Campus tours are also offered during our Open Houses. This is a great opportunity to visit campus, attend information sessions, meet faculty, and envision your future at TRU.
