Exam Prep & Rules

Make sure to check out the Faculty of Arts & Science Exam Rules and Exams Toolkit, which includes study strategies, tips on what to expect at exams, and information on what to do if you encounter difficulties related to an exam. Good luck on all your exams!

Classes in the George Ignatieff Theatre: Students are asked to abide by the theatre’s house rules:

  • Please no food or drink other than water
  • Please keep rolling stock (bicycles and skateboards) out of the theatre
  • Please use the powerbar in the rear house centre for laptops and other items that need charging (cables that cross stairwells can cause folks to trip and fall)
  • During exams, please place books and coats onstage (rather than in the aisles where they become a trip hazard)

What’s News: The commuter lounge is located in the Melinda Seaman Hall in St. Hilda’s College. Drop by to relax and connect with other students.

Trinity is home-away-from-home for many students who do not live on campus. In fact, 3 in 4 students commute daily. Our Non-Residence Affairs Committee (NRAC), a branch of student government, is responsible to keep non-residents involved in student life through programming and resources. You will find their office (and the many supports and services they provide) in Melinda Seaman Hall in St. Hilda’s College. The Co-Heads of NRAC work closely with the Office of the Dean of Students, Dean of Arts, Academic Dons, and other Administration to bring supportive programming to commuting students, always with the goal of encouraging engagement in College life. You can find much more information on the student-maintained website, Trin Life.

The Buttery is the main common use study lounge for commuters and is found on the main floor of the Gerald Larkin Building. This wheel-chair accessible building has a cafeteria, study space, a lounge, washrooms, events space, and even a fireplace. The relaxed setting makes it a perfect spot for informal meetings, from group-study sessions to tutoring sessions with Academic Dons and TAs.
