Trent University is a liberal arts and science-oriented university located along the Otonabee River in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. The University was founded through the efforts of a citizens' committee interested in creating a university to serve the Trent valley. The Symons campus of Trent is approximately 5.6 km2 (2.2 sq mi), over half of which is a part of Trent's Nature Areas, an ecologically diverse wild-life preserve. It is divided into a series of colleges: Champlain, Lady Eaton, Catharine Parr Traill, Otonabee, Peter Gzowski, and Julian Blackburn. Each college has its own residence hall, dining room, and student government, other than Julian Blackburn which is a non-residential college and home to Trent's 1,700 part-time students. The campus plan and the original colleges were designed by the Canadian architect Ron Thom. A large portion of the main campus consists of land that was donated by GE Canada. Trent also runs a full- and part-time program in Oshawa at the new Thornton Rd. campus, with an enrolment of over 800 students.
