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.

We anticipate that in 2022 Trinity Hall will start an exciting redevelopment project on one of its older residences.  Prospective residents are advised that there will be some level of noise, and construction traffic to be expected during the works; and some communal facilities will not be available to residents during the duration of the project.

Residential Room Applications for 2022/23 Academic Year

Applications for 2022/23 were open from 30th March – 16th May for new entrants to College. Applications have now closed for CAO students and we anticipate that the provisional offers to CAO students will be made by end of June 2022.

It is important to note that places at Trinity Hall are not offered on a first to apply, first offered basis. Each year the demand for accommodation greatly exceeds the number of places available. Random selection will be used by the Warden on all CAO applications to choose a selection of applicants. These applicants will be made a  ‘provisional place’ offer. Applicants not selected during the random selection process will be notified. Following the First Round of CAO offers, and on being successful in getting a place in TCD, ‘provisional place’ holder’s  supporting statements will be used to assist with the allocation of room assignments.

Direct entry applicants, such as those students applying from outside of the EU, should note that all places in Trinity Hall have been allocated and applications for Hall are therefore no longer invited.

CAO applications will re-open for late applicants on 24th May. Also – please note, applications received on or after 24th May will be treated as late applications and will be reviewed and considered after the First Round of CAO offers are issued for any remaining places that may become available after the initial waitlist has been exhausted.
