Housing & Meals

Students on the Trinity in Cape Town program live in self-catered apartments in the Mowbray neighborhood, close to the University of Cape Town. There are two students to each apartment and each student has their own bedroom. There is no meal plan so students are responsible for shopping and cooking for themselves at nearby markets.
