School of Graduate Studies

Closely-Knit Community

Graduate Studies at Trent is home to a closely-knit community of about 550 students. Here, you will become part of the community, as you build relationships and interact in small classes and with faculty members and advisors. Trent offers you a unique educational experience, where collaboration and an interdisciplinary approach see students of all ages and from all around the world come together in scholarship. And these, are the ties that bind – our alumni stay in touch with the School and with each other, oftentimes connecting through their professional pursuits.

  • Catharine Parr Traill College is an integral part of the academic and social life of the University as a whole, home to many graduate students. The College is also a self-contained and active community, beautifully situated on a drumlin in downtown Peterborough. One of Trent’s original colleges, Traill is named in honour of one of the region’s first settlers and consists of a collection of old houses of architectural and historic significance.
  • The Trent Graduate Students' Association is an active part of the community acts on behalf of all graduate students. Among its many mandates, the Association organizes social monthly events, including summer barbecues and end-of-term banquets.
