    University Facts and Statistics: Thompson Rivers University

    When the University College of the Cariboo and the British Columbia Open University merged in 2005, the resulting Thompson Rivers University kept the former’s commitment to on-campus learning and the latter’s dedication to flexible, post-secondary distance education. This unique blend of systems for delivering education has afforded students an expansive array of learning opportunities. TRU currently has campuses in Kamloops, which is also the University’s main campus, Burnaby, and Williams Lake, each with their own unique mix of on-campus and distance education offerings. The University also has regional centres specifically for distance education in the Cariboo region, Clearwater, 100 Mile House, Lillooet, Nicola Valley, North Thompson, and upper Fraser Canyon.
