Trinity College

Course Schedule

As we move towards the end of the global pandemic, we are looking forward to a reopening of the university campus in Fall 2021. All courses will continue to be available online, but some courses will also return to being offered in person in the Larkin Building (LA) of Trinity College. Only students of the University of Toronto will be able to attend in person; non-U of T auditors are restricted to the online sections of courses. See below for details for each course.

For online courses, please note that courses vary in terms of asynchronous (materials and activities which can be accessed and completed at any time) or synchronous (live scheduled activities) delivery. Please check with the individual course instructor and the course syllabus to ensure you understand how the course will be delivered.

We understand that accessing education can often present even greater challenges for those with special needs, particularly remotely and during these difficult times. As well as registering with U of T's accessibility services, please let us know if there is anything we can do to make our courses more accessible.

All times given are Eastern time zone.
