Trent receives gift of land for expansion from Oshawa

June 30, 2017

The City of Oshawa has donated 1.8 acres of land to Trent University Durham, which will enable the university to expand its Oshawa campus and program offerings. “With first-year student increases averaging 25 percent annually the current facility will soon be at capacity,” said Trent President Leo Groarke. “We are excited to plan for new academic and residential space to accommodate student demand in the Eastern GTA for September 2019.” The expansion plans include the construction of two new buildings: an academic building and a residence building with academic space on the first floor.
