The Trent Colleges
The Colleges at Trent are local communities that create intellectually and socially meaningful experiences.
Choose a College based on what speaks to your interests, and feel free to switch affiliation if you make a connection in a different College. The point is find a place where you belong and that inspires you.
Regardless of your academic program, you can choose to affiliate with any College - everyone is affiliated somewhere. Residence students are automatically affiliated with the College where they live.
Named in honour of the explorer Samuel de Champlain, the college is situated right on the bank of the Otonabee River. Champlain’s spirit of adventure, discovery, and global citizenship are captured in the college motto: “continuer mes decouvertes”, “continue my discoveries”.
Welcome to Otonabee College!
We respectfully acknowledge that we are on the traditional territory of the Mississauga Anishinaabeg. We offer our gratitude to First Peoples for their care for, and teachings about, our earth and our relations. May we honour those teachings.
