Trent University is home to five, one-of-a-kind colleges –
communities with distinct identities and diverse, passionate
individuals, like you.

Five colleges. Five communities. One Trent.
Founded on the idea of self-discovery while providing a supportive community, the
five colleges of Trent will form the social bedrock of your university experience.

                 “The philosophy which inspires Trent is based upon the conviction that education is, inescapably,
The philosophy

                   an individual experience. This philosophy … is reflected in the decision that Trent should be
                   a collegiate university … In this way, through the colleges, members of the University may be
                   helped to preserve a sense of individual identity as the University grows larger, and to find richer
                   personal associations and a greater measure of academic assistance than would otherwise be
                   the case.” Founding President Thomas H.B. Symons

Each college is run by a principal who leads a team of dynamic academic
support staff offering personalized assistance for all students. From orientation to
convocation, your Trent college will be there to support your educational journey.

Surround yourself with fellow thinkers from across the academic spectrum who
will challenge your ideas, encourage your ambitions, and help shape your path
forward. Housed in timeless architecture, the walls of Trent’s colleges provide room
to explore your ideas, build relationships, and find your community.
