Trinity At a Glance

From our expansive and historic campus in Hartford, Connecticut, Trinity College stands on a tradition of independence. Since its founding in 1823, Trinity has been an example of collegiate excellence in the liberal arts and sciences. But we pair this classic approach with modern research and an urban-global perspective to graduate independent, innovative thinkers. And by pursuing our individual interests in a welcoming, small-college culture, we gain confidence in ourselves and friendship in one another.
