Our virtual Winter Orientation – your guide to all things Trent.
Hello from the TrentU Orientation Team!
Trent welcomes a number of new students who begin in January, including transfer, mature, off-campus, and on-campus students.
This year Winter Orientation will be taking place virtually from January 4th until January 6th via Zoom, Instagram and the Trent Mobile App.
This virtual Winter Orientation will cover everything you need to know about starting at Trent University. We have purposefully planned that everything on this website will help inform incoming students about all aspects of their university career.

To keep the group sizes small, and to accommodate for students who may be joining remotely in different time-zones, we will be hosting duplicate sessions of the transition content in the morning and the afternoon of each day. Session 1 will be between 10:00 AM and 12:00 PM, and Session 2 will be from 2:00 PM until 4 PM on January 4th to 6th. While these repeat sessions are targeting towards winter start students, any student who started in 2020 is welcome to join these sessions.
The registration link for each Winter Orientation Session can be found here:
Winter Orientation will be held on January 4th - 6th and all programming will be online.

These sessions will provide you with useful information about your transition to life at Trent, a chance to ask questions to our student staff moderators, and professional staff members will be present representing support and resource departments available on campus and remotely. We encourage you to take notes, but these sessions will also be recorded and available to you with closed captioning after the event.

Parents and Supporters of new students will receive practical advice on supporting their student—both before and after they arrive on campus, a quick reference guide to the services and supports available to Trent students, and reassuring answers to the questions and concerns that are most likely to be on their mind.

Not sure where your student should turn for help with a particular problem? At our Peterborough campus, the college office for their college is a great place to start. Our friendly and helpful college office staff will either help your student to resolve the problem directly or point them in the direction of someone else who can help.
