Mail & Packages
We provide mail and package service for students living in residence. Last year we processed over 10,000 packages! Students are provided a mailbox key to access their mail from their assigned mailbox (students in double, triple or suites share mailboxes). Mail is distributed Monday to Friday, except on holidays.
For packages larger than the size of your mailbox a package delivery notice will be sent to your TrentU email address advising you of where and when to pick it up. Please have your photo ID ready!
Hoping for a care package from home? Send it here!

If you notice any facilities concerns in your building, residence community, or residence room, complete a Residence Maintenance Request Form through the Housing Portal. Work orders are processed Monday to Friday, 9 am to 4 pm. If your matter is of an urgent nature, contact your Residence Life Don or Campus Security.
Laundry facilities are available to students in each residence free of charge. Students are responsible for providing their own detergent and laundry softener. Need help to figure out how to do laundry for the first time? Chat with your Residence Life Don.
Caretaking Services are provided in the public residence areas Monday through Friday. Students are responsible for maintaining the cleanliness of their personal space (bedroom, and bathroom for Gzowski students, the full apartment for apartment style residences).
Many of our students choose to rent a mini fridge from the Coldex Fridge Rental Company. Once your reservation and payment has been made, Coldex will have your fridge delivered directly to your residence room! Coldex is also responsible for picking the fridges back up at the end of the school year making your move-in and move-out procedure as simple as possible. To book your fridge, please follow this link: coldexrents.com/school/trent
