Room Application - Criteria


The criteria which will be used to allocate rooms on Campus are drawn up each year by the Registrar of Chambers and Warden in consultation with the Welfare Officer of the Students Union. The criteria used for allocating rooms for the academic year 2009/2010 are outlined below.

  • Students with entitlements, e.g. Scholars, are allocated rooms according to the regulations governing their entitlement.
  • All remaining rooms will be allocated so as to meet the objectives of creating a vibrant academic community in line with the vision of College outlined in the Strategic Plan.
  • In order to give as many students as possible the experience of living in college residences, the expectation is that students would be allocated a place on campus for no more than one year (unless students have an entitlement to rooms).
  • Applicants will be distributed according to the proposed distribution given below.
  • Evidence of significant contribution to college life will be taken into account.
  • While preference will be given to applicants from outside Dublin, all applications will be considered.
  • Where other criteria are equal, rooms will be allocated by random selection.
  • CANVASSING WILL RESULT IN THE APPLICATION BEING REJECTED.
Proposed Distribution of Students Between Campus and Trinity Hall:

Note this table is a guideline only. The number in each category is an estimate only. Students who apply for Trinity Hall may apply for a year long tenancy. Rent for Scholars is not covered during the long vacation.
