Highlights of the Facilities Renewal Strategy

  • The proposed capital program, based on current enrolment and growth projections, will satisfy the University’s academic space needs (teaching, faculty offices, and grad studies offices) for the next 10 years.
  • The investment in the Athletics Complex will be the first since its construction over 30 years ago and will eliminate the need for further investment for at least 20 years.
  • A Student Commons is a new addition to student campus life which provides for the growth of essential support services as well as provides much needed student gathering and socializing areas.
  • The Bata Library will refocus on its core activities while remaining a student focal point, however, the library will no longer be the primary socializing area for students.
  • The capital program is estimated at $42.4 million, the operating budget impact is manageable within the University’s present operating environment.
  • The continued operation of Traill College satisfies the interest of numerous Trent stakeholders.
