COVID-19 RESPONSE

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 and to follow the advice and directives of government and public health authorities to slow the rate of transmission of COVID-19 in our community. Like the University of Toronto, all Trinity College buildings will continue to remain closed to members of the public and visitors. Only members of the university community who require access to Trinity buildings for instructional and work purposes can enter our buildings.  With that in mind we remain closed for photography permits, in-person external events and conference services until further notice.   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.
