About the College
The college's distinctive buildings range along a cedar ridge overlooking the river from which the college derives its name ('fast, flowing water'). To the east, an uninterrupted vista of rolling rural landscapes; to the west, the newly-constructed Peter Gzowski College and the Science buildings, the Faryon pedestrian bridge, providing easy access to the Bata Library, the Athletic Complex and the other Symons Campus colleges.
Eight "houses" of residence, all of them connected by an interior walkway called "the Street", make up Otonabee's residence. Each house contains single and double bedrooms with desks and closets, a kitchenette and a commons area. There is a laundry room for the college as well. Adjacent to the residence is the College Office where the Principal, College Assistant, and Senior Tutor have their offices. Past "the Link", a set of faculty offices, is located the academic wing.
From One of Our Students...
Otonabee College is a fantastic place to live, study and grow at Trent. The houses within Otonabee
are a great place to gain a sense of community; your housemates become your family away from
home. Regardless of which house you live in, Otonabee has an enormous amount of pride which
comes from its amazing leaders, outstanding administrative staff, and motivated students. There
is always something going on in OC and the support from your fellow College mates and staff make it easy to join in and excel. Otonabee College is an experience you do not want to miss!
