Students

This page provides information for TRU students. For information that applies to everyone, be sure to go to the COVID-19 response page.

If you have any questions, please email us at covid19info@tru.ca.

All students

Before accessing TRU property, all students must assess themselves daily for COVID-19 symptoms, using the BC COVID-19 self-assessment tool. Do not visit campus if you have symptoms, live in the same household as someone who has a confirmed or presumptive case of COVID-19 or if you are returning from travel outside of Canada in the last 14 days.

If you are coming to campus as a student employee, you must also confirm you have completed your daily health check with your supervisor.

When you are indoors on campus, you are required to wear a mask. This includes in classrooms when seated. Everyone on campus must maintain a physical distance of two metres (six feet) from others, wash hands regularly and use hand sanitizer.

All students attending face-to-face instruction and those participating in athletic training are required to take these three mandatory courses.

On campus now

We expect to deliver most of our courses virtually until September 2021, when we return to campus and face-to-face classes. While not all programs will return fully, most are going back.

Most courses delivered virtually are a blend of scheduled virtual meetings (synchronous) and assigned work that does not require specific meeting times (asynchronous). These courses appear in the course schedule as virtual delivery and may require students to participate during the scheduled days and times indicated.

TRU now offers Student Success 0600, a free online course that helps students make the most of programs with alternative delivery.

On campus September 2021

Safety is our priority. All BC public universities and colleges are preparing for a safe return to on-campus education in September. TRU is working with provincial authorities to plan a return to campus with as many services up and running as possible. More information will be available later in April.

Every British Columbian should be able to get their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine this summer. TRU is confident the combination of immunization and Go-Forward Guidelines will support the safe resumption of campus teaching, learning, and research. These guidelines will inform our campus safety plan.

Health and wellness

If you feel sick, please see our Health Screening page for more information or call 811 (HealthLinkBC).

HealthLinkBC offers mental health services. And the TRU Wellness Centre is currently offering virtual support, including a student wellness ambassador team.

Student technology support

Please go to Technical Requirements for Alternative Delivery for instruction on what you need to take courses online.

Residences

Our residences are open. Students in residence should practise the same precautions related to COVID-19 as they would in their own home – wash hands regularly, practise proper sneeze and cough etiquette, and keep surfaces clean. Those who share accommodations with others MUST self-isolate if they, or others who share the accommodations, become symptomatic or are confirmed to have COVID-19.

Students in residence who think they have COVID-19 must notify Campus Living Centre’s Housing Administrator Kaylee Butler (admin@truresidence.ca) who will advise the university’s manager, Community Safety and Emergency Management.
