History
Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario, opened its doors to its first students in September 1964. The University was founded on, and continues to develop, the firm belief that teaching is a very personal process and learning is an individual experience.

Special Characteristics
Trent believes in the importance of a liberal undergraduate education. It stresses the development of the critical thinking and analytical skills required in today’s global workforce. Trent University’s smaller class sizes and hands-on teaching methods provide an environment where students have the opportunity to apply what they learn. The college system is another of Trent’s strongest qualities. It is designed to engage students in a smaller community within the University. Each student chooses an affiliation with a college where they find a mix of residential space, academic facilities, faculty offices, administration offices and student space.
