Open House Events
One of the best ways to find out if Trent is the right fit for you is to attend an open house event.
What can I do at the Peterborough campus Open House? We look forward to welcoming you to Ontario's #1 Undergraduate University. This page has all the information you need to have a successful day at Fall Open House.
Start your day at one of our welcome areas at the Athletic Centre, Bata Library Gzowski College or Otonabee College. We will help answer your questions about Trent and direct you to the activities that interest you the most! Here you will get a programme of events to help you navigate your way around campus.
Campus Tours take place all day and depart from the Athletic Centre and Gzowski College. Our campus tours are walking tours of our main campus and are approximately 1 hour in length. Look for the white "Campus Tour" tent.
Our Peterborough Campus has a variety of different styles of residence accommodations to meet your needs; everything from single, double, triple and suite style. During Open House you will be able to visit Gzowski College, Otonabee College, Champlain College, Lady Eaton Annex, Lady Eaton College and Traill College residences.
Residence Tours are guided by a current first year student living in residence and depart from their respective colleges on a drop-in basis. Each tour will last approximately 10 - 15 minutes.
