Your Room Awaits: Secure Your Spot in Residence & Be Part of our Growing Community at Trent Durham GTA
Living in a university residence is a life-changing experience for many students. It can be their first time living away from home, a safe environment to figure out their direction in life, and a place where life-long friendships are created.
When students come to Trent University Durham in September 2020 and move into the new student residence they can expect a warm welcome and a variety of dynamic programs and services to help them succeed. It will be an exciting time on campus and a great start to university life at Trent Durham.
Continuing in the long-standing Trent tradition of collegiate communities, the building will fully integrate both living and learning spaces, creating an environment for students, faculty and staff to connect and learn from one another.
The support you need to succeed
In residence, students will find a supportive environment with access to many services and to staff who will be there to guide them through their time at university. Trent student Michelle Arshad is just one of the people you can expect to meet when you move into the Trent Durham residence. She’ll be working as the senior don and will be on hand to help students succeed as they transition to university life.
As a senior don, Ms. Arshad makes it her goal to foster a sense of community early on in the school year. “Constantly being with friends and building strong connections is a remarkable experience that can only happen when living in such close quarters with one another,” she says
“The number one aspect of living in residence that students enjoy is attaining a sense of independent living in a safe environment. Living in residence allows students to move away from home and work towards building life skills.”
Fresh food for a fresh space
In addition to the many features of Trent Durham’s new 200-bed student residence, students will enjoy a newly expanded food services menu and a bright, open dining space on campus. Students will enjoy made-from-scratch, locally-sourced home-style meals mixed with international flavours. With fresh menu items throughout the week there will always be something new to try.
Trent Durham’s student residence creates a welcoming and collaborative space for students, faculty, and staff to enjoy. Living in residence gives students the opportunity to connect with the greater university community through the many events, workshops, and student groups available on campus.
