COVID-19 Safety on Campus

We are proud of the measures we have taken to safely provide TRU students with on-campus education and services. We are grateful for the community’s commitment to following them.

With COVID-19 still a part of our reality, this is a responsibility we continue to take seriously.

We are working with the Ministry of Post Secondary Education and Future Skills, Public Health and other BC post-secondary institutions, along with other health experts, to ensure we are taking the appropriate steps to best protect the community.

As a reminder, we each have shared responsibilities to keep our campus community safe. Thank you to everyone who got vaccinated. It played a key role in allowing us to move toward a normal campus life.
