Named after Chanie Wenjack, Trent's largest lecture hall is located in Otonabee College. The naming of this lecture theatre remembers the work of student leaders from the Indigenous Studies department who, during the construction of Otonabee College, lobbied for the College to be named in Chanie’s honour.
The students saw this dedication as an opportunity for Trent to strengthen its Indigenous Studies program, and establish itself as a force for change, hope, and a positive educational experience.
The campaign led to the memorialization of Chanie through the naming of Trent’s largest lecture hall as the Chanie Wenjack Theatre.

The quad is located in front of the residence building and accessed from the first floor. The Quad is a great place to have lunch, hangout with friends, or visit the tipi!
