LOVING THAT #BalconyView
Housing and Dining
With a three-year residency requirement, Trinity offers space and flexibility in on-campus housing and dining options.
New students share their first year experience with Tigers from 47 states and 37 countries. Balcony life is a hallmark of Trinity’s skyline campus with many students having views of downtown, the football field, and courtyards.
We also know you’ve gotta eat! Trinity’s dining services provides several meal plans along with different spaces to sit down or grab-and-go. We also offer special accommodations for a variety of restrictions and tastes.
First-Year Residence Halls
Comprised of six buildings on the east side of campus, halls are clustered together so all first-year Tigers can experience a vibrant, supportive community.
Living-Learning Communities bring Tigers with a shared interest together and create opportunities for academic engagement outside the classroom.
Upperclassmen Residence Halls
Upperclassmen Residence Halls are comprised of junior and senior students along with the HOPE Hall and Swashbuckler communities.
