Oshawa residents raise concerns over Trent campus proposal

June 4, 2009

At a public meeting in Oshawa regarding Trent University's proposed satellite campus, residents living near the potential site voiced concerns about the possibility of student housing problems. One resident suggested that if the campus goes ahead in her area, the city should issue a licensing bylaw similar to that in place for student housing near the University of Ontario Institute of Technology and Durham College. Another resident disagreed with a Trent official's assertion that there will be no demand for student housing, citing data from Trent's website that about a quarter of students need housing.
