Thompson Rivers University, Kamloops, BC


Thompson Rivers University partnered with NRB Modular Solutions to build a permanent modular, four-storey, 80-room, 148-student bed building. The new permanent modular student housing will be built on the vacant portion of Thompson Rivers University’s East Village.  

The project is part of Homes for BC, a 10-year housing plan to build 114,000 units throughout the province by 2028, including 8,000 on-campus student beds.  

The modules are built locally at our NRB Kamloops manufacturing facility.
