TRU is looking forward as students return to campus in September 2021. While not all programs will return fully, most courses and programs are going back.

We are planning to accommodate pandemic restrictions on our campuses this fall.

The plans will explore program delivery in classrooms, labs, seminars, experiential learning and research, and be based on best knowledge in the field as well as consultations with students, faculty and staff.


Our Goal

This fall, we want to offer all students enrolled in TRU’s on-campus programs the opportunity to attend one of our campuses for some face-to-face instruction.

Our Priorities

Our priorities are the safety of the TRU community and the success of our students.

Principles guiding our return to campus

  • Students are our priority and remain central to our vision and role as a university.
  • Everyone can find a sense of belonging at TRU.
  • We support students in achieving their learning goals.
  • Faculty, working as co-learners, are an essential element for success. They are empowered to choose the delivery method that will ensure a safe, high-quality course.
  • TRU has the foundation for success in the strength of its academic and support services
