TRU hopes to build modular student housing to address student need

September 17, 2021
CFJC Today reports that Thompson Rivers University is hoping to build modular student housing to address the need for housing for international students. TRU and the City of Kamloops have been working together to fast-track a building permit that would allow TRU to build a $2.5M temporary student housing “village” in a university parking lot that would accommodate 152 students. The village would have four separate buildings, and students could move in within two weeks of its construction. The new residences would provide a space for those who are currently living in temporary locations such as motels. CFJC Today (BC)
