If you’re a Thompson Rivers University Student or staff member that wants to live as close to the campus as possible, there are a number of options for TRU off campus housing in Kamloops, though many aren’t ideal. Traditionally, TRU students and staff have had to take what they can get, renting an older, outdated apartment near campus, a spare room in someone’s home, or an apartment advertised as being “near TRU”, which really aren’t that close at all.
McGill Ridge, the new Kamloops apartment community is opening soon! Phase 1 of development is nearing completion and will introduce 102 rental apartments to the Southwest Kamloops/TRU neighbourhood. We'll post updates about progress and will announce our opening day, so please visit again.
