One of the first steps an incoming or prospective Trinity College student needs to make before coming to College is deciding where they're going to live, and then securing their accommodation.

Trinity Hall

There are a large number of rooms available for first year undergraduate students at the University residence at Trinity Hall.

Trinity Hall is a large, friendly complex with its own Junior Common Room which organises social activities and events throughout the year. Situated 4km from the city centre, and easily accessible on foot or by public transport from the central campus, Trinity Hall accommodates over 1,000 students in shared single or twin apartments.

How to apply:

Applications for Trinity Hall for the 2024/25 Academic Year will open on 20th March 2024, and close on 16th May. All prospective students interested in living in Trinity Hall should apply (without obligation should they not receive an offer to study at Trinity) during this period.

Please note that places at Trinity Hall are not offered on a first to apply, first offered basis. Once the provisional application process closes on 16th May, random selection is used by the Warden on all applications. Successful applicants will then receive a ‘provisional place’ offer which must be confirmed upon acceptance to the College (either by direct application, or following the first round of CAO offiers) to secure their accommodation.
