Trent announces new student housing development


Trent University has announced that it is leasing land to Residence Development Corporation for the development of student housing. The lease will enable the corporation to build and operate a three-storey townhouse-style building near the Symons Campus, which will have approximately 215 beds for upper-year students. Trent says that the plans will help to resolve the housing shortage in the region. “[T]his development will provide more housing options for upper-year students close to the Symons Campus,” said Trent VP, External Relations and Development Julie Davis. “There is a need for more housing in Peterborough, and this new student housing project is just one of the ways Trent is working to help alleviate some of the housing pressures in our community.”
