For the 6th year in a row, TRU will receive funding for skilled trades positions.

85 seats for Kamloops’ TRU college campus was announced for this school year by Advanced Education Minister Amrik Virk today. That means at least 85 more renters ��


Students make up a large part of the Kamloops tenant pool, and with the university and college perpetually expanding, I always have a few students in at least one of my rentals.

Students can be great tenants if property managed, and student housing can be very profitably if done correctly. Make a mistake and rent to the wrong group however, and you could find yourself in quite a mess.

Stay posted to learn strategies of renting to students in a future post. I will also include great tips for renting to international students(hint: it’s not as difficult as it sounds ).

Until next time,
