Our Students

Hartford is brimming with opportunities for students.

Whether it is through internships at the State Capitol, learning and researching through Trinity’s Community Learning Initiative, or providing holiday gifts for children at a domestic violence shelter, Trinity students are involved and active members of the Hartford community.


Trinity students have countless options for internships within the city. Hartford is home to several Fortune 500 companies, like Aetna and The Hartford, and other major corporations, like Travelers and United Technologies, where students can gain real-world experience. For students interested in healthcare, Hartford Hospital and Connecticut Children’s Medical Center are just a mile down the road from campus.  And as the seat of Connecticut’s government, there are numerous internships within the legislature, state offices, and with political and lobbying organizations. These are only a few of the many opportunities that are at the fingertips of Trinity students. Learn more about internship opportunities for students.

Service and Volunteer

A strong commitment to civic responsibility is an important part of student life on campus. Many students participate in service organizations and projects, from Halloween on Vernon to Trinity’s own Habitat for Humanity chapter. Whether it’s environmental and sustainability issues, human rights, youth and families, or hunger and homelessness, Trinity students are committed to making positive impacts in the Hartford community. Learn more about students’ service and volunteer opportunities by exploring the Office of Community Service and Civic Engagement.

Hartford is for Everyone

It’s not just internships and service that draw students to the city. You’ll meet students as they participate in Samba Fest, the daylong Brazilian music and culture festival hosted by Trinity every spring. You’ll encounter students expanding Hartford’s bicycle infrastructure,  and exploring the city through pre-orientation programs and visiting landmarks around the city with their Bantam Network nests. With so much to offer, Hartford can be anything to anyone.
