Thompson Rivers University

Since 1970, TRU has taken pride in providing an excellent education to every student who comes to them — from various backgrounds and perspectives at various stages of the learning journey. 

The University serves more than 25,000 students — on campuses in Kamloops and Williams Lake, and via distance or online courses and programs through Open Learning.

TRU offers over 140 on-campus programs and 60-plus Open Learning programs from traditional academics to trades, from certificates to graduate degrees. 

Students apply what they learn in co-op work terms, study abroad, undergraduate research, field schools and practicums, service learning and other opportunities — with guidance and mentorship by our accessible faculty. 

Research, creation and innovation thrive in the open, flexible learning environment. And so do the students.
