Pay parking and enforcement

Pay parking is in effect at the TRU Kamloops campus Monday to Friday (including mid-semester breaks and exam periods). On evenings, Saturdays, Sundays, statutory holidays and days that TRU is officially closed, there is no charge for use of pay parking lots.

Vehicles must clearly display a valid permit or register with ePermits during enforcement hours. Vehicles must be parked in parking lots and in designated marked parking stalls. 

Parking is prohibited on roads and roadways in parking lots, entrances and exits to/from parking lots, emergency/fire lanes, sidewalks, grassy areas, stairway areas, and any area not clearly marked as a parking space. Any vehicle parked in a non-parking space or impeding travel or pedestrian walkways will be subject to a ticket and/or towing without warning at the owner's risk and expense.

If you believe you received a ticket in error, email with a photo of your ticket and include your name/TID and lot you were parked in. Parking will verify if an error was made and cancel tickets under such circumstances.

Reduce your commuting and parking costs—find a TRU student, faculty member or staff member to carpool with, using TRU Rideshare, a free online app.

Reserved and premium parking

Please ensure you note all parking lot signage; online maps may be out of date. Each numbered reserved stall—marked with a red and white sign—is assigned to one specific person and is not interchangeable. Premium permit-holders can park in any unmarked stall in the lot specified by your permit.

If you find another vehicle in your reserved stall, you may park temporarily in any general or economy lot but not in a premium lot. Please don't take action against the vehicle; instead contact the Parking Office immediately (250-828-5368) to get the issue resolved and to ensure you are not ticketed while in a general or economy lot. If you do receive a ticket, contact the Parking Office to cancel it.
