Trinity strives to be a residential college and currently houses over 90 percent of matriculated students in college-owned and -operated housing.
Students are allowed to petition to live off-campus on a space-available basis. 175 students will be allowed to live off-campus (housing not owned by the College) based on completing the application and their housing lottery number.
Trinity College is not involved in making off-campus housing arrangements for students. Students are responsible for arranging their housing off-campus. Once the application deadline has passed, students will be notified if they have been approved to live off-campus for the following academic year.
Students are strongly encouraged not to sign a lease until they receive approval to live off-campus!
