What's your university-village vision?

Thompson Rivers University is considering a development plan at the campus to create a university village and is looking for input on how the vision should proceed.

The first of three public discussions will be held on Thursday, Feb. 14, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Mountain Room of the Campus Activity Centre.

The discussion came during consultations to update the campus plan and is described as a move to enhance campus life and add vibrancy at the site for anyone who visits.

Similar village concepts exist at Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia, including market-based residential housing, student residences, retail shops, restaurants, professional offices and an assembly space for students.
