Williams Lake Campus

TRU’s Williams Lake campus is located approximately three hours northwest of Kamloops, in the heart of the scenic Cariboo region, on T’exelc territory within the unceded traditional lands of the Secwépemc Nation.

Our small, friendly and close-knit campus community is located within the city of Williams Lake, BC, named in honor of Secwépemc Chief William. Here, you’ll enjoy a quiet and affordable lifestyle, with all the amenities of a larger centre, and with four seasons of spectacular outdoor adventures in your own beautiful backyard.

We offer small class sizes, personal attention, and practical learning experiences in every program.

Many of our students come from the region and are Secwépemc, Carrier, Tŝilhqot’in, St’át’imc, Okanagan, Nuxalk, or Nlaka’pamux. We also have many Métis and Inuit students at TRU and we welcome Indigenous students from across the country.
