BC commits more than $7 million to TRU law building development

October 10, 2012

The BC government announced Tuesday it will invest up to $7.4 million in a permanent facility for Thompson Rivers University's law school. Having welcomed its first students just one year ago, the law school has been housed in temporary quarters while TRU's Old Main building was undergoing an extensive expansion and refurbishment. The first phase, which entailed extensive rebuilding of the exterior envelope, is near completion. BC funding is contingent upon approval of TRU's business case. The province's investment will accelerate planned interior upgrades (Phase 2), with completion slated for next fall, and include more lecture space, faculty offices, and common space.
