Orientation Week

All incoming Trinity College students are encouraged to participate in Orientation Week, held each September before classes start. Orientation Week gives is an opportunity to get to know other newly admitted students, upper-year students, faculty, and staff, all while exploring Trinity College and the broader University of Toronto campus. The week is planned by Trinity College student leaders under the direction of the Office of the Dean of students and with input from community through the Orientation Advisory Committee.  The week is designed to help facilitate your social and academic transition to university life. While orientation week activities differ from year to year, a number of traditional events, supports, and resources are provided annually.
