I missed getting a graduation photo done - can I still do this?
Graduation photos are being offered for all Trent campuses and are a wonderful memento of your years of hard work. The following companies have contracts with student associations. They have a full supply of Trent’s unique gowns and hoods and offer props such as scrolls, flowers or hats (note that hats are NOT worn at Trent convocation but you can have a photo in one if you wish).
Trent Peterborough Symons Campus
Photos are taken by Miranda Studios. They are a local Peterborough business so they offer either in-studio or on-campus appointments all year. Contact them to book an appointment: (705) 742-8338; email firstname.lastname@example.org; web site: www.mirandastudios.ca
Trent Durham GTA and George Brown Nursing
Photos are taken by New Paramount Studios, Toll Free number: 1-877-677-1930. They normally come to campus to take photos so contact them to find out the current arrangements. For Durham GTA you can also contact the TDSA.
Can I borrow regalia to take photos?
The Conference & Hospitality department that provides this service is currently renting gowns and hoods on Fridays for the weekend. The returns are on Mondays (or Tuesdays if it is a long weekend).
Bookings are made through the updated 'Fall 2020 Grad Gown' rental request form which is now active on MyTrent under 'services'. Book early to avoid disappointment. Due to extra protocols during the COVID19 pandemic, dates and inventory are limited.

Can I get a yearbook?
The Trent Annual yearbook is created and managed by Peterborough students (it only collects fees from Peterborough students so is not available for Durham or George Brown students). The 2019-2020 yearbook was already created when COVID hit. The Trent Annual will print the yearbooks and find a way to get them to graduates. Contact Trent Annual for more questions.
Where can I get a degree frame?
The Trent University Bookstore offers Trent-branded (and alumni!) gifts and a few options of frames specifically for Trent degrees, with branded mats for Peterborough and Durham GTA. They are open on campus or order online
