First-Year Students

Starting Out for the Class of 2022

Starting Out is a communication system, using a variety of media, created to tell incoming first-year students and families what they need to know to “start out” at Trinity College. At the heart of this communication system is this website which you should consider your centralized location for materials that you need to read, reflect, and act upon before you arrive on campus. 

The information currently provided is only a sampling of what you will need to know. We will be adding new information specifically for the Class of 2022 in the coming months and then throughout the summer as it becomes available. The information provided will enable you to select your classes; sign up for your First-Year Seminar; complete your health forms; complete your Residential Survey for your housing assignment; and, in general, sign up for campus services and first-year opportunities.​​​ 

You must visit this site regularly throughout the coming months for additional updates.​​​​

Trinity Email and Account Login Information - early May

Information Technology Services will send incoming students new credentials for Trinity online services once your accounts have been set up. (Note: your new username and password will be different from your admissions login.) This confidential information, along with instructions to access the various services, will be sent in early May via the email address you provided on your admissions application. All Trinity students are provided a Trinity College email account through which the campus community will correspond with you. You should begin using it as soon as you receive your account information.
