Community

Kamloops' Emerging Urban Lifestyle

WHERE LIVING AND
LEARNING CONNECT

The Reach is an emerging, urban community on the campus of Thompson Rivers University

This 90-acre, multi-phased, generational project is strategically rooted into the campus’s 250 acres of view property located just outside of downtown Kamloops and is surrounded by well-established residential neighbourhoods, an 800 hectare municipal park, and a growing commercial district.

For almost 50 years, the TRU campus has grown and evolved into the world-class place of learning and living that it is today. Set high on a plateau, the university’s campus has room to reach beyond its core purpose – to support the development of a new urban destination where living seamlessly connects with learning.
