Trent Residence features a choice among six colleges (four on the main campus and two in downtown Peterborough). All are unique in style and character but all strive to provide a comfortable, safe and home-like atmosphere. Students can also purchase meal plans as part of their accommodation package, which can be used in a variety of locations on campus.
Detailed information about the residential colleges can be found at http://www.trentu.ca/international/residenceandhousing.php
Study Permit/Visa information:
In order to enter Canada to study at Trent University, you may need a "Temporary Resident Visa" (this allows you to enter Canada), and a "Study Permit" (This allows you to study whilst in Canada and may also make you eligible to participate in the free medical insurance plan). These documents are obtained from the Canadian Embassy, Canadian Consulate General or Canadian High Commission in your country.
Further information regarding these requirements can be found at http://www.trentinternational.org/service/center/index.php?id=149
International students who do not hold a Study Permit are not covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan. Thus, they must register for the University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP). UHIP covers the basic hospital and doctors' services in Ontario. This plan is mandatory for all international students. Students should register the first week of classes.
For more information please refer to the official University Health Insurance Plan website
Exchange student support services:
You should feel confident that when you arrive in Peterborough, a team of staff and new friends will be there to welcome you to your new home and to support you for the whole time you study at Trent. You will be joining more than 550 international students from more than 90 countries who made Trent their temporary home.
The Trent International Program (TIP) will conduct an International Orientation Camp. The camp is an opportunity for new students to spend time together and prepare for life at Trent just before classes begin. Trent University representatives will be at the Pearson International Airport to greet you and arrange to take you to the Orientation Camp
