Message from Trinity’s Student Services Team

Dear Trinity Students:

We hope you are well and had a restful reading week. We know that many students are struggling as we watch the terrible events in Ukraine unfold. At this extremely difficult time, we are extending our thoughts to Ukrainian people, including our students and community members who are of Ukrainian heritage. In light of the conflict in Ukraine, the University of Toronto and Trinity College are offering support to our community members who may be affected at this time. We have outlined available resources and supports below, and encourage you to reach out if you need help.
