Photography & Filming


The health, safety and well-being of our community members is a top priority. We continue to work closely with the University of Toronto to monitor the development of the COVID-19 pandemic.   U of T has paused the requirement to be fully vaccinated, for physical distancing for in-person activities on University premises, and for mandatory mask usage.   Completing a health screening before coming to campus is still highly recommended, and we continue to ask members of our community to remain at home if they are ill.

We ask everyone to respect the decisions of others regarding these measures, according to their comfort levels and health needs.  It is vitally important that, even with the easing of provincial measures, we remain vigilant, conscientious, and respectful of one another.  The status of our facilities may change as public health guidance is revised, for further information and updates please see Trinity’s COVID-19 Updates.

As this continues to be an evolving situation, we thank you for your patience.


As a federated college of the University of Toronto, Trinity College Photography Permits are required for all photography taken at Trinity College, including weddings and engagements.

The permit allows photography for outdoor locations only (grounds only, not within the buildings) on the Trinity College campus. Interior shots are prohibited, except in the Chapel or other room you have booked for your wedding or special event.  Please be aware that others may be around during your photo shoot. Should the permit be approved, it does not guarantee exclusive access to the areas. Trinity Security staff will request proof of permission (Photography Permit) from photographers. No photography is allowed without a valid permit.

Trinity College reserves the right to cancel a photo booking if it conflicts with an organized Trinity/University event. Reasonable notice will be given to the involved parties. In such cases, if no satisfactory alternative time, site or date can be arranged, location fees will be returned.

We do not issue photo permits more than two months in advance. Please revisit this form two months before your proposed date to submit a request.

The cost of the permit is $150.00/hour plus HST. Trinity College Staff and Alumni may be eligible to receive a 50% discount on the price of the permit. Reservations and payment directions will be provided by Trinity College Event Service & Catering Office, please contact us for further information.


For other photography and videography/filming requests on the Trinity College campus, including for commercial and business use, a location agreement will be required. Please contact us for further information.
