A look at the interface of the new TRU Go mobile app.

Student success is a top priority here at Thompson Rivers University, so to help ease the demands of university, TRU launched a new mobile application called TRU Go—a one-stop shop for all the necessities of student life.

The app, which is available for free in the Google Play store and Apple App store, offers a wealth of current information about TRU and its resources while providing safe, secure access to information for students, faculty and staff.

Whether you’re studying on campus or through Open Learning, TRU Go enables you to view your course timetable, exam schedule and grades as well as access essential tools such as Moodle, Blackboard, student email and myTRU in one place.

Tired of logging into multiple sites in your browser? Use the app to access finance, campus parking and city transit schedules.

Want to know what events are happening on campus? Check out the built-in event calendar at a glance.

Other features include:

  • News
  • Events
  • Social media
  • Campus map
  • Campus contacts
  • Notifications
  • Student tools
  • Final grades
  • Help desk

While TRU Go does not replace the website, it compiles the most commonly used features in one easy to access place.

The app is in its infancy and will continue to improve to meet your needs with new features and updates in future versions. Your feedback is welcome—look for chances to submit your input right in the app.
