In the rapidly changing situation surrounding COVID-19, the University Library and Faculty of Student Development have decided to postpone the March 19th Long Night Against Procrastination. This decision was made with the health and well-being of our community in mind.

TRU will continue to refer to the federal government guidelines for mass gatherings to inform decisions on events hosted on campus. For more TRU-specific information, please visit

What is LNAP?

A writing and research extravaganza! However, LNAP is so much more: it recognizes and accommodates the demanding, multi-faceted schedules of our students by offering alternative and timely support; contributes to a sense of belonging; and battles loneliness and isolation.

Writing Centre tutors, Library staff, and Math Centre tutors are ready to help.

We also provide a variety of Wellness activities:

  • Eyebrow threading

  • Henna tattoos

  • Yoga

  • Campus safe walks (with glow-sticks!)

And...we can't forget the food!

  • Pizza at 10pm

  • Healthy snacks, coffee, tea & hot chocolate through the evening



Q: Do I need to register to attend?

A: We ask that you register in advance to help us plan the event. Drop-ins are permitted so long as we have space. We do expect the library to be pretty full, so plan ahead if you can. 

Q: How do I register in advance?

A: Fill out our online form.

Q: What sort of support can I expect?

A: There will be Writing Centre tutors, Library staff, peer mentors, math tutors, and more.. who will be there as resources as you work on your writing and assignments.

Q: Is LNAP really a thing?

A: Yes! It is a global effort to create a safe and supportive environment for writers. it first started at the European University Viadrina, Germany in 2010 as a way of supporting students academically. Writing can be a lonely endeavour. who doesn't need a little encouragement and support from time to time?

Q: If I leave early, how do I get back to the student residence safely?

A: Join us on a Safe Walk. We will walk a loop around campus past student parking lots and both student residences three times through the night (9pm, 11pm, and 1am). Meet at the front door of the library and get home safely!

Q: Will Kamloops Transit be running at 1am?

A: No, Kamloops Transit will be running their regular schedule with the last bus leaving campus around 11:20pm (depending on the route). Our last Safe Walk of the night will be at the end of the event at 1am. We will walk as a group to parking lots and residences.

Q: What should I bring?

A: Bring at least one assignment to work on, including any assignment instructions or first draft that you might have. You may also wish to bring a laptop, water bottle, and travel mug; we'll supply the tea and coffee, but appreciate you helping us make LNAP a sustainable event. Bunny slippers are optional.
