Kamloop’s Thompson Rivers University – At the Forefront of Uptown’s New Walkability

Nestled atop uptown Kamloops lies one of BC’s best kept University secrets. Thompson Rivers University’s 13,000 students speak to its rank as one of BC’s largest universities, yet few in the populated areas of the South Coast know of it’s very existence. TRU is at the forefront of Kamloops’ second downtown, an area known as uptown which is quickly expanding in residents and walkability. The main campus and buildings of Thompson Rivers University are centred around a walkable grassy mall which makes it truly pedestrian friendly. The student population is composed of many international students which give the City of Kamloops a cosmopolitan feeling typical of most much larger major cities.

Many of the campus buildings are relatively new, they together with some older buildings form the nucleus of this sprawling campus. Renovations are currently under way to add extra floors to the Old Main building, once finished these new floors and exterior look will house the TRU Faculty of Law.
