Fall is just around the corner for TrentU Durham GTA!
We are excited to welcome you to come to campus in-person and experience some of the great things you may have missed out on last year.
This year, we are running ReOrientation! An event that is geared toward providing opportunities for students who started last year to reconnect on campus with other students, leaders, staff, and faculty.
As we prepare for your arrival as a member of our community this year, there are several things you can do to ensure you can make the most of your experience.
ReOrientation events and activities are designed to help you transition to on-campus university life.
All of our on-campus activities are run in a safe and secure environment following health protocols and adhering to our Trent Forward plan. For more information, check out www.trentu.ca/trentforward.

Residence Move-In Day – Students who are moving into residence will be able to do so on Monday, September 6th. Stay tuned for information from Housing Services on your time to move in and check out a special event for residence students hosted by Housing and Student Services.
Minecraft Online Event – Join us in Minecraft for some special Trent fun and games. Whether it's battle royale, hide and seek, or joining a cross country adventure with friends, you can connect with other Trent students in a virtual world that includes a digital recreation of the Durham Campus.
Food Truck Dinner – Dinner is free for all ReOrientation students at our food truck marketplace. You get a ticket to use at any of the food trucks on campus to get a meal and there are multiple trucks to choose from. Drinks and cotton candy will also be available.
Campus Fair – During and after dinner for the evening, hang out with new friends and leaders at the campus fair. A free event featuring tons of games such as soccer darts, dance dance revolution, axe throwing, and many other activities. A great way to end the day of fun!
Social Activities – Students can join orientation leaders to participate in several games and icebreakers to help you get to know each other. Students will have the opportunity to join teams where they can connect, play games, or just relax and socialize with other students.
Community Vendors Alley – Situated in our new atrium, members of the Durham community will be on campus to explain their services, recruit volunteers or staff, and give away free swag. Vendors include retail establishments, restaurants, services, and entertainment venues. There will be music, refreshments, and prize giveaways!
Movie-on-the-Lawn – Set up in our new quad, we are hosting a movie outside on our 25' screen. Come outside with your blanket, camp chair, or inflatable couch and get some free popcorn while watching a movie with friends.
Orientation Pop-Up Events – Throughout the day, orientation leaders will be hosting pop-up events around campus for students to participate in. Events include live rocket league, tie dye your life, craft activities, and video games.
We hope that you are as excited as we are to welcome you as a member of our campus, on campus!
