The Trent Colleges
Welcome to the Trent Colleges
Trent’s Collegiate System offers a unique opportunity for the creation of engaging and meaningful experiences for students outside the classroom, whether they choose to live locally or participate remotely. The realities of COVID-19 challenge us to re-imagine what it means to be a part of a collegiate community, invite us to collaborate creatively with our Peterborough and our campus partners, and inspire us to innovate in our engagement with students, fellows, and alumni. The Trent Colleges are up to the challenge.
