Trinity Hall

Trinity Hall is an official residence of Trinity College that is recommended for all students but particularly for new entrants to College. There is a vibrant sense of community at Trinity Hall with an active Junior Common Room which organises a diverse range of activities making the Hall an ideal place to make friends and get acquainted. But there are more than the social activities to consider as Trinity Hall is organised as an academic community with the appropriate supports and just the right amount of reasonable regulation.
