Thompson Rivers University

The Gathering Place—or Cplul’kw’ten in Secwepemctsin—is your friendly and inviting Aboriginal centre providing information on all aspects of university life and doubles as space to socialize, study or just take a break from your day. It is truly a home away from home.

Receive assistance in finding services on campus, supporting band funding applications, exploring academic support options such as tutoring or locating housing and off-campus amenities.

You can also receive support from the established Elder in the House Program and often gather in the lounge or backyard BBQ area for social or ceremonial events.

The Gathering Place is also home to a range of workshops on study skills and wellness, one-to-one counselling, librarian services, on-site computers, as well as a kitchen and lounge area.
