Our media relations team works to promote the people and programs of the college, aiming to build awareness and understanding of the college and its value and relevance in the 21st century.
For the Media
Media coverage of events
Media representatives may attend and cover Trinity events that are open to the public, but we ask that you always contact our media relations team prior to coming to campus to photograph, record, or interview Trinity faculty, staff, students, and guests. For assistance, email Media Relations Director Kathy Andrews (or call at 860-297-4285) or Communications Associate Andrew Concatelli (or call at 860-297-2140). We must ensure the rights of those who prefer not be photographed, videotaped, or interviewed. We are responsible for escorting media representatives, conveying facility-access restrictions, and alerting Campus Safety whenever a reporter, photographer, or video crew will be coming to campus. We will assist with requests for pre- and post-event interviews in an approved location that will not impede attendees entering or exiting the event.
Photography and video
Always contact our media relations team in advance of sending a photographer or camera crew to Trinity. All requests must include date, time of arrival, and time of departure. In general, photography and videotaping are allowed only in outdoor spaces. Cameras are not allowed inside campus buildings without permission from the media relations team.

FYIs for Media
• Most Trinity College offices are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Eastern time.
• In addition to connecting journalists with Trinity experts, our media relations team can be a resource for story ideas, information, and photo- or video-related requests.
• Guest WiFi Access When Visiting Trinity College Campus: Visitors may connect to “TrinGuest.” Upon opening a browser, you will be asked to register using an email address (you will want to be able to receive the resulting email or text using your mobile phone). Guests will be emailed and/or texted a username and password, which will work for five days. Please note that this is not suitable for web-streaming or uploading large files, only for accessing the internet.
For the Campus Community
We can help you promote your work and accomplishments and manage media inquiries. Contact us for guidance on inviting media coverage, responding to media inquiries (including coordinating with media for on-campus interviews), writing and placing op-eds, and aligning media relations efforts with your strategic goals.
If you’re looking to promote a campus event to the general public, your best bet is our new events calendar. Contact the Communications Office for more information and training on the new calendar.
