Otonabee is the largest of the five colleges at Trent University. Established in 1972, OC is located on the Eastbank overlooking the river for which it is named. In Ojibwe, Otonabee means "river that beats like a heart" which symbolizes the way this college looks to the horizon, and imagines how we can keep up with change in our fast-paced lives while honouring our hearts. Our motto also reflects the meaning of Otonbaee in, tempora mutantur nos et mutamur in illis (the times are changing and we change with them). OC prides itself on connecting to our students to enhance your experience throughout your time at Trent. Our residences, spread through 8 different houses, provides a home for students from out of town in their first year. We have K-house specifically for first year off-campus students to help in their transition to university. OC is the home of the Nursing Living Learning Community. Members of the Nursing LLC will share passion for Nursing and show great interest in exploring Nursing in depth by connecting with peers and faculty and participating in community outreach initiatives. Members of the Nursing LLC will have the opportunity to create their own activities and events and together, develop the Nursing LLC Legacy Project which will be passed on to members of the Nursing LLC in the years the follow.
