By promoting your personal and academic growth we extend the educational experience beyond the classroom and lecture halls. The best part is, you choose how you wish to be involved!
Getting involved in Residence is easy, whether you enjoy social activities with your friends, helping others with academics, being part of a team through athletics or working towards changes for everyone by being active in student leadership!
IT’S ALL HERE FOR YOU!
Trent University Durham Residence provides students with opportunity to become leaders amongst their peers. This opportunity is provided through the Residence Council. Residence Council serves a number of purposes in Residence and is committed to ensure a successful Residence Life Program.
As volunteers, Residence Council members give back to the Residence community through continual programming and being active community participants. Each floor will have three Floor Representatives who are elected by the Residence population. With various committees run by Floor Representatives who are internally elected committee chairs, Residence Council works with the Residence Life Staff to program towards the needs and wants of students in Residence.
Residence Council also provides students living in Residence with a venue to voice their concerns in an open and welcoming environment where student input can be heard.
If Residence Council isn’t for you, why not think about joining the Welcome Crew? The Welcome Crew helps the Residence staff with the move in activities over the move in weekend. It is an excellent opportunity to meet a lot of new people as well as participate in events.
Resident Advisors (RA) Events
The RA’s provide engaging events weekly for residents to participate in. They can range from running games and activities to taking exciting trips off campus to enjoy what the city has to offer.
