You are part of the Trent Alumni Family!

All graduates of Trent University, and former students that completed one full, academic year are automatically lifelong members of the Trent University Alumni Association (TUAA), and there are no membership fees. Did you know? Your alumni year is actually the year you started at Trent, not the year you graduated.

TUAA Council

The TUAA is championed and governed by a volunteer Alumni Council. Council represents the interests of all Trent University alumni, acting as advocates on their behalf and celebrating their successes. The goals of the TUAA and Council are to initiate and support activities which will further the interests of Trent University and to foster a spirit of fellowship among alumni.

Alumni Council is now working under a new, revitalized structure, which was approved at the Annual General Meeting on January 30, 2021.

View the meeting agenda for our last Annual General Meeting, which took place on Saturday, November 20, 2021, via Zoom.

We are looking for volunteers to participate in one of the working committees to engage with your alma mater, meet other passionate alumni, and stay connected to the #1 Undergraduate University in Ontario for 11 straight years! To express your interest in volunteering, please email
