During our business hours, you can find study cubicles, two study rooms, and limited computer stations in the Durham Campus Library & Learning Centre. There are also a large variety of study space options available in other areas of the Trent Durham-GTA Campus, including desks and computers in Room 112 (the computer lab), tables in the Atrium, space in the student lounge (by the TDSA office), and tables elsewhere in the hallways.​

As of Friday, May 27th, the DCLLC will have discontinued adding money to TrentU Cards. Please see the Print & Post to top up your TrentU card on campus, or find "TrentU Card" under My Account in MyTrent. 

You can check your card balance at our printer release station by tapping your card or when you are logged in to one of the campus computers - find the green P symbol in your task bar by the clock!

Yes! There are limited computer stations available in the Library and many more in Room 112, the Computer Lab. Black and white printing is available in the Library ($0.10/page), and both black and white printing and colour printing ($0.50/page) is available in Room 112.

For now, we are prioritizing access to spaces and collections to support currently registered students, staff, and faculty. This will allow us to adhere to capacity restrictions and required health and safety protocols, including physical distancing and enhanced sanitization of spaces and collections. We look forward to eventually welcoming alumni and community visitors back to the library when we can manage the additional capacity.

Please visit Trent Forward’s page for more information about non-Trent community members visiting the campus.

The I.T. presence on Durham Campus is now located in Room 119! For more information on their hours and how else to contact them, email them at or visit their website.
