Congratulations On Your Acceptance To Trinity College!

Welcome to the Trinity Community! You are joining over 1,900 residential students in a living-learning environment located in the center of an exciting urban community. On this page, you and your family will find information about living on campus.

Living at Trinity College — A Bantam Beginner’s Guide

We work with students to meet their needs on campus by creating the environment in our residential communities that will be most conducive to their overall success, both academically and socially.

During the summer, incoming first-year students are asked to complete a residential survey so they can be matched with a roommate(s). The survey allows students to give us information about their personal habits, environmental preferences and special needs so we can determine their housing assignment and roommate(s).

Transfer students will be in communication with Susan Salisbury, Director of housing operations, regarding their housing assignments.

Once assignments are provided to all students, no room changes will be considered until two weeks after classes begin. This allows students the time needed to begin developing a positive and healthy relationship with their roommate(s).

Residential Communities

First-year students are assigned to live in one of six residential communities: Elton, Jackson, Jones, North Campus, Smith, & Wheaton. All first-year communities are mixed gender, though some floors are a single gender. All shared bathrooms are single-gender. Each first-year building has a community lounge with a large tv and recently renovated kitchen.

Upper-year students are assigned to live in one of sixteen residential communities: CCLC, Clemens, Cook, Crescent Street Townhouses, Funston, Goodwin-Woodward, Hansen, High Rise, Jarvis, Northam Towers, Stowe, Summit East, Summit North, Summit South, Vernon Place, & Ogilby.

Room Furnishings: Each bedroom has an extra-long twin bed frame and mattress, desk, chair, dresser, and a wardrobe or closet space.

Community Mentors: Each residential community, with the exception of the Crescent Street Townhouses, has a Resident Advisor(s) [RA] and/ or a P.R.I.D.E. Leader(s), upper year student leaders who work to develop a sense of community within each residential community.

The Bantam Network Residential Learning Community Staff

Our Residential Learning Coordinators-TRINsition Fellows (RLCs), are full-time professional staff members who live on campus and oversee the residential communities. The RLCs guide, supervise, and train our residential student staff. You may notice a RLC attending a program in your residential community, eating lunch at Mather, walking through the residential communities, or attending to an emergency situation on campus.

Students have additional support through the extended Bantam Network Team, which guides students through their Trinity experience from matriculation to graduation.
