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.

Each year we welcome thousands of future students and their families to our Open House events. There's nothing quite like walking around campus and being able to picture yourself here - from your room in residence, to the classrooms you'll actually sit in, and the professors who will always take a moment to chat. We invite you to join us for an exciting and informative day on campus.
