Where do most 1Ls moving to Kamloops from another city live?

I lived in res during my 1L year as did quite a few others.  I lived downtown the remaining 2 years which I really enjoyed.  You'll find the majority live in Lower Sahali, Upper Sahali, Aberdeen or downtown.  Quite a few choose the north side as well because it's often a lot cheaper.  Do your research before you choose the north side though.  If you have a car you can look into neighbourhoods that are a little further from the school such as Valleyview or Juniper.

That’s really helpful thank you. Which building did you stay in when you were in res?

A lot of law students live in the new res building. Also, the landmark condos across from campus are popular with law students. They just added one more building to this condo complex so there will likely be plenty of rentals there.

I was in the new res building.  If you're going to do res, make sure you get the new res as the old one is absolutely disgusting.  

If you can afford the landmark condos across from campus, it's a great suggestion.  The condos in there are all fantastic and I had a few classmates who rented there (or bought), but it was far outside of my price range.

I’ll check out the condos, although they may be out of my price range as well, thanks!

I am a 1L and live downtown (near the "Sagebrush Theatre"). 

I drive a car, and would NOT recommend living in this area of you don't have one. The buses have to change near the downtown core and you're commute could take 45 minutes.

Its nice to be close to downtown, but to be honest I don't find myself going out around there much. I'm from a large city and the nightlife in Kamloops is bleh. I am typically occupied in other ways (get togethers at friends houses etc). Thank goodness because the bars suck.

New rez is good if you don't have a car since it's about a ten minute walk to the Old Main Building, although that's about the only perk of living there. It's overpriced for what it offers students, if I'm being honest.

HELP...I have a dog and am struggling to find anywhere to rent.

I'd definitely suggest posting this on the Facebook group for the class of 2021. There's about a dozen or so upper years that may have recommendations. Also a good place to find roommates. Just search TRU Faculty of Law - Class of 2021 and ask to join. Once you're on that page, you can then request to join the tru law black market page where apartments are often listed by current and outgoing students who would know if pets are allowed.

    • I am not sure that is entirely true, at least from my experiences. Many of my friends at other schools have had much more work to do for similar courses and I also found their work harder at times. I also think it depends on the professor. 
    • Also, Brock is a "party school." So you might go there expecting easy grades because "if you can walk and talk, you can go to Brock" and get distracted by all the social stuff, whereas you might focus more at U of T because other serious students you meet motivate you. *not to say there aren't smart, serious students at Brock and party animals at U of T too - I'm addressing the stereotypes. 
    • I don't believe it. It's simply true. To pretend otherwise is to spread falsities to high schoolers keen to go to law school who may miss out on an excellent institution like u of t, simply because of fear that they won't get into law school if they did. Not that highschoolers should care about getting into law school 4 years later. But they do. So at the very least let's not get them missing out on excellent education in light of wholly unsubstantiated claims.
    • I just officially finished 2L yesterday, and I have to say law school has been one of the best times of my life.
