Trinity College


Trinity is one of the oldest and smallest colleges at the University of Toronto, and offers its students a supportive and engaging environment in which to pursue their academic studies. Trinity students come from a diverse set of backgrounds and pursue a wide range of academic programs and extra-curricular activities. The college sponsors programs in International Relations, Immunology, and Ethics, Society, and Law, as well as Trinity One - one of the two original First Year Foundations.

Because of its small size (first-year enrolment is limited to approximately 450 students), Trinity students build a strong sense of community and form life-long friendships. Trinity provides its students with excellent support services, including advising from the Registrar’s Office, an extensive scholarship and bursary program, a writing centre, a math aid centre and academic dons – graduate students living in residence at the college who provide academic and non-academic support to both resident and commuter students.

Located conveniently at the centre of the St. George campus, Trinity features impressive architecture and inviting green space. Among the most notable landmarks are the Trinity Quad, the John W. Graham Library, and the iconic Strachan Hall, named for founder John Strachan. Trinity is also a campus leader in environmental sustainability and has a green roof and solar panels.

SIZE: 1,800 students

Scholarships and Awards

Trinity College provides an extensive scholarship and bursary program, beginning with admissions scholarships awarded to approximately 15 per cent of the college's incoming class. Admissions scholarships range in value from $1,000 to $3,500.

While at Trinity, students are automatically considered on an annual basis for merit-based scholarships. In addition, students can apply for awards for excellence in academics and community involvement. These awards range in value from $1,000 to $15,000 and are sometimes renewable for multiple years.

Graduating Trinity College students have a range of scholarships available to them, including the Provost Delworth Awards, awarded to students who have accumulated significant OSAP debt. Trinity students are also eligible to apply for a college bursary, which is a non-repayable grant awarded on the basis of financial need
