Lights on again after four day power outage at TRU

January 09, 2015 - 2:17 PM

KAMLOOPS - After a power outage that lasted from Sunday to Thursday afternoon, most businesses on the TRU campus have resumed operations powered by an emergency generator.

The Campus Activity Centre and three houses on the grounds were closed after the latest snowfall damaged a transformer, cutting the power. 

Students looking to buy a semester's worth of books were asked to order them online this week. Staff at the bookstore are processing over 400 orders. The bookstore will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Jan. 9, and will open Saturday, Jan. 10 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Students looking to pick up book orders can do so at the Simply Computing store in the Activity Centre. To prove the order is theirs, students are asked to bring a copy of the web order's confirmation and identification.

The student union counter will be open, but students are asked to get campus cards in the Old Main Building. Bookings in the centre have been cancelled, while food services, including the Heroes Pub will stay closed.
