Trent University is embarking on a review and update of the Trent Lands Plan – the strategic overview for the stewardship, care, and use of Trent’s approximately 1,400 acres on the Symons Campus. The Trent University Lands and Nature Areas Plan will assist the University to achieve its vision of a ‘sustainable and inspiring campus community, thoughtfully integrating the natural and built environments, with vibrant spaces to learn, innovate, be active and live’.
