The health, safety and well-being of our community members is a top priority.

As directed by the provincial State of Emergency declared on March 17, 2020, all Trinity College buildings will be closed as of 11:59 pm, March 17, 2020 to the public. On March 23, 2020 Premier Doug Ford announced the mandatory closure of all non-essential workplaces, except for a list of essential services, effective at 11:59 on March 24, 2020. As directed by government and public health authorities, all Trinity College buildings (Trinity proper, St. Hilda’s College, Gerald Larkin, John W. Graham Library/Munk School), are closed to everyone, other than essential workers who are critical to our campus and residential operations for residence students who are unable to return home at this time. Although our doors at Trinity College are closed, our staff, faculty and instructors are working remotely to provide essential services and supports. As this is an evolving situation, further decisions may be made on short notice. Thank you for your understanding.
