Trent's College System

Trent is among a select few universities worldwide built on the “College” system, smaller units of living and learning – each with its own history, tradition and character – that form the university as a whole. Think of these Residential Colleges as intimate neighbourhoods in an active city.

Trent’s Colleges provide a range of services including residence, meals, social activities and academic advising. The College system is a unique tool enabling students to interact with staff and faculty on a personal level because it incorporates classrooms, departmental and administrative offices and residences into its community.
