Common questions

 Where can I find my TRU-ID?

All students have an ID starting with the letter T. There is a section in myTRU that will allow you to verify your TRU ID.

 I'm a returning student. What happened to my old myTRU system emails?

Access to the old email system in myTRU was only available until January 2015.

 Can I redirect my TRU Outlook email to a personal email address?
 I want to use the wireless network on campus. What login/password do I use?

Use your TRU ID with the same password you use for MyTRU. For this to work, you must be registered in a course (not wait-listed).

 There are two wireless options on campus, which one do I use?

Eduroam. When you are on campus, it automatically logs you into our wireless network.

Note: OL students who visit other universities may be able to use their TRU credentials to access that particular university’s wireless network. The IT Service Desk can assist you with this option.

 What about the password for Blackboard Learn? 

The default password for Blackboard Learn is your birthdate in yymmdd. If you have forgotten your password, please email ITServiceDesk@tru.ca including your full name, student number, date of birth, and address as a form of verification.

 How often do I need to change my password?

Your unified login for myTRU and the network will expire in 365 days, after this expiry you will be required to change the password on a Campus computer or on https://myid.tru.ca before you can access other services such as the wireless, Moodle, or Library login.

 What about popup blockers?

Software originally designed to block annoying advertisements that "pop-up" when you visit certain websites. Many legitimate sites use pop-ups and require you to modify your pop-up blocker settings in order to use them. myTRU is one of these sites.

This software is included in every modern web browser and installed with many toolbars and security programs.

We suggest that you add an exception (allow) pop-ups for all TRU websites in one of your blockers and disable all the others. You need to add the exception *.tru.ca

If you are finding popup windows are still being blocked after adding an exception you may want to try an alternate browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.

 What browsers are supported?
Windows
  • Firefox
  • Internet Explorer
  • Chrome
  • Microsoft Edge
  • Safari
Macintosh
  • Firefox
  • Safari
 What is the browser cache?

Each time you access a file through your web browser, the browser caches (stores) it. In this way, the files (including any images on the page) do not have to be retrieved anew from the web site each time you click the Back or Forward buttons. You should periodically clear the cache to allow your browser to function more efficiently and to ensure that you are viewing the most recent version of the page.

How to Clear Your Browser's Cache

 Are my username and password secure?

YES. The myTRU login page uses SSL encryption to ensure that your username and password are secure. This is reflected in the URL (https:) displayed.

 What is the timeout on a myTRU session?

Your session will time out after 15 minutes of inactivity. If you select ‘Stay Signed In’ checkbox you will stay signed in for one week and will not be prompted for your credentials the next time you access myTRU in that timeframe.

 How do I give feedback?

Please send your feedback using the comment feature at the bottom of the myTRU page.
