TRU’s Kamloops and Williams Lake campuses are located on the traditional territory of the Secwepemc peoples, in British Columbia’s southern interior.

TRU’s Kamloops and Williams Lake campuses are located on the traditional territory of the Secwepemc peoples, in British Columbia’s southern interior. In Kamloops (from the Secwepemc word for “meeting of the waters”), the main campus overlooks the junction of the North Thompson and South Thompson rivers, from which the university gets its name.

Today, 14,000 students study on campus in Kamloops, Williams Lake, or at our regional centres in 100 Mile House, Clearwater, Barriere, Ashcroft, and Lillooet. Another 11,000 students attend classes throughout the world by distance or online.

Our campuses also welcome the community, with conferences and events such as the Canada Summer Games and the Kamloops Marathon, and opportunities to learn through continuing education and visiting speakers like John Ralston Saul, Peter Mansbridge and Margaret Atwood.

Planning is underway to develop our 250-hectare Kamloops campus into a university village environment, with parks and outdoor meeting spaces, shopping, professional services, market housing, and other features to bring the community to TRU.

Throughout the year, TRU ISAP provides international students with the opportunity to:

  • Meet Canadian students and experience our culture
  • Meet students from other countries
  • Experience Kamloops and region
  • Participate in year round events
  • Help plan and organize activities

Students can experience events and activities such as: snowboarding, skiing, Halloween parties, hockey games, wine tours, white water rafting, and so much more. Come out to one of our activities.
