Home Away from Home

Trinity University is your Tiger's home to live in, learn from, and explore. Whether bonding with roommates and suitemates, sharing a meal in a campus dining hall, or discovering the city of San Antonio, students make their time on campus a "home away from home."

Advice From Tiger Parents and Families

Cindy of Sacramento, California, recommends keeping a balance of about $100 on your student’s Tiger Bucks account. She says her student used debit cards and Venmo to share off-campus expenses. And in the event of an emergency, Cindy suggests trusting your student with a credit card.

Jean of Georgetown, Texas, says to purchase in advance a small, free-standing wire shelving rack for the bathroom. It is the perfect place near the sink for toothpaste, combs, soap, etc. that might not fit on the countertop when multiplied by four student occupants.

Although move-in day is a breeze because of the help of Team Trinity, moving out at the end of the year requires assistance, says mom Loretta of Houston. She recommends purchasing a dolly that converts from a two-wheel vertical truck to a four-wheel platform cart.

Our advice? San Antonio is a big city. Even if your student forgets to pack something, there’s always a store nearby that probably carries the item they need (Target is only 3.8 miles away, and Bed Bath & Beyond is only 4 miles away).

 

Care Packages and Mail

Need to send your Tiger a package? Students receive mail at the Tigers’ Den and packages from the Mail Services Center, located near Prassel Garage. Students’ campus mailboxes usually remain the same until they elect to move off-campus.

Visit the Mail Center website for information on how to address mail and packages, and find helpful hints for families sending mail.

How do I react when those calls come?

Leslie Wan P'10, parent of a Class of 2010 Tiger, writes:

"No matter how prepared for college or resourceful you feel your student is, you are going to get calls. These will cause you stress if you don’t understand in advance that these calls, too, shall pass."
