COVID-19 Safety on Campus

We are proud to have safely provided TRU students with on-campus education and services throughout the 2021-22 academic year, thanks to the safety measures in place and the community’s commitment to following them.

As we all prepare for the 2022-23 academic year and with COVID-19 still a part of our reality, providing a safe work and learning environment for faculty, staff and students is a responsibility we take seriously.

We continue to work with AEST, 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.
