Trinity College Dublin University of Sanctuary

Trinity College Dublin was designated a University of Sanctuary in February 2021.

University of Sanctuary

Universities of Sanctuary is in an initiative that recognises and celebrates the efforts of the universities and colleges that welcome and support migrants, refugees and asylum seekers within their academic communities.

Trinity commits to creating an inclusive environment, offering opportunities for education, and fostering a sense of belonging for displaced individuals seeking sanctuary in Ireland. 

Through its University of Sanctuary work, Trinity provides scholarships, financial support, language supports and additional services to students of sanctuary. Through community initiatives on campus, Trinity also seeks to build solidarity and friendship between university communities, local people and those seeking sanctuary in Ireland.

The University of Sanctuary programme complements Trinity College Dublin’s membership of and involvement with Scholars at Risk and the New University in Exile Consortium.
