Thompson Rivers University has unveiled its newest student residence building, named Sk?elepéllcw (or Coyote Den) in recognition of the traditional territories of the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc. The new building in the East Village features 80 rooms and 148 student beds, as well as common study areas and kitchen spaces. This construction is the first of three new buildings planned for East Village that aim to address the critical need for student housing options. “Secure and affordable housing is an important part of what enables students to succeed in their studies,” said TRU President Brett Fairbairn. “Not only does this new housing enhance the student experience, it also shows TRU is continuing to do our part to address BC’s and Canada’s housing shortages.”
