Student Life

The Trinity experience is powered by students. 


Trinity is a place where people get together to create, learn, discover, compete, and socialize. Whether it is a student working one on one with a faculty member in a lab or office, a group lingering over dinner in the Mather dining hall discussing whether there should be limits to free speech, or two classmates hatching an idea for a new smart phone app, Trinity is first and foremost a community of people who are interested in ideas and one another.  

If you are a person who engages with people and ideas, who is curious about the human and natural world, and who wants to be a contributing member of a vibrant community, then Trinity might well be the place for you to test your mettle and make your mark.  With over 100 clubs and organizations, a dedicated and diverse student body, and a city around us, there are few limits to what you can do if you have the desire to learn, curiosity, and are willing to do what it takes to make this campus "yours".

Live + Learn
Residential life is the heart of the Trinity experience. Almost all Trinity undergraduates live on campus all four years. In first-year residence halls, your roommates are your classmates, sharing closet space and a first-year seminar. As a sophomore, junior, and senior, you can choose from cozy singles, roomy suites, or a spot in a theme hall, like the service-minded Praxis or the eclectic “The Fred.”

Events + Activities

Between on-campus lectures, concerts, movies, parties, club meetings, yoga class and a capella practice — plus Hartford sporting events, free music festivals and shopping trips — you’ll be busy, but it’s the best kind of busy. Learn more about what’s happening at Trinity

Support + Resources

Even though campus life is student-driven, it’s supported by a strong network of student resources, including: academic tutoring, health and wellness programs​, personal counseling, and the Career Development Center. We are proud of our diverse, inclusive campus and our relationship with the greater Hartford community.​​
