Information for Families

Welcome to the Trinity College community! We are excited to welcome your family member into our community. The transition to university life is an exciting and challenging experience for students and their families alike. The intent of this webpage is to provide you information and resources to support you, your student and your family.

Student Services

Our Trinity College Student Services Department is composed of the Registrar’s Office and the Office of the Dean of Students.

Registrar’s Office

The Registrar's Office provides Trinity College students with academic as well as financial advising and can refer students to additional specialized services offered by the University of Toronto. The Registrar’s Office also supports students through administering bursary and scholarship applications as well as processing requests for letters of enrollment. Students can meet with someone in the office on a drop-in basis, or book an appointment by phone or e-mail.

Packages will be on sale from Tuesday, February 14th until Friday, March 3rd at 4:00 pm. There are two different packages available.

Spring Orientation

Our Spring Orientation event for newly-admitted students and their families is an opportunity for you to learn more about life at Trinity: its academic programmes, courses, and student services, as well as its atmosphere and environment.  There will be seminars and presentations for families on topics including student life, academic life, the family role, and finances.  Students and families will also go on guided tours of the College.

The Community of Trinity College

As a member of Trinity College, your student is starting down the road to becoming part of the growing community of Trinity alumni. To find out more about what is happening in the alumni community, take a look at the most recent edition of the Trinity Magazine.

Student Confidentiality

Trinity College is required by law to protect each student’s confidentiality. This means that access to information about your student is different than it was during high school. University faculty and staff can only share details of a student’s enrolment, finances, and other aspects of student life with the student themselves. We understand that this transition can be challenging for both students and family members. However, learning to manage administrative responsibilities is also an important part of every student’s development — a process our staff are very experienced in supporting them through. We encourage students to engage with faculty and staff when they have questions, comments, or concerns, as well as to talk to you, their parents and families, about their experience here at university.

The University of Toronto has a great website for the families of our students. Check out their website by clicking on the link UofT Families.
