Community is a key element in the Trinity education and every student can benefit from a wide variety of available supports.

A core aspect of the Trinity education is the potential for co- and extra-curricular activities which broaden and reinforce the experience of a Trinity graduate.

Student societies have been an essential part of life at Trinity since the 17th century. Culture and the Arts are key to Trinity's heritage and are reflected in our student experience.
