Notice of parking lot closures

Effective Monday, Nov. 2, 2020, economy parking lots N and NT and general lot W are closed until the end of February. Demand for these lots has been low and closing them will allow TRU to save on snow removal costs. If you have been parking in economy, note that lots XT (at the West Gate) and Z (at TRU Housing East Village) remain open.

Students residing on campus that have long-term lot N permits have been assigned lot H during this closure.
