Residential College

Welcome to Trinity College. We think you'll like it here.


There’s something special about living at Trinity College. For one, we are the only residential college at the University of Melbourne that specialises in undergraduate students. That means everyone is in the same boat – our students are generally around the same age, living away from home for the first time and studying a bachelor degree, so they have plenty in common right from the get-go.

We know from years of experience that before arriving at college, many students feel a little nervous. They think, will I fit in? Will I make friends? Will I be able to find help if I need it? Don’t worry, if you move to Trinity, the answer is YES! 

Making friends is easy

Making friends from across Melbourne, Australia and the world is one of the greatest things about living at Trinity, and we have some of the best academic and wellbeing support programs on campus.

Because we are not too big and not too small (we'll have around 380 students in 2020), getting to know people during study sessions, by sharing meals in the dining room, and through sport, music, parties and other activities is easy. Our students come from all walks of life and have a range of interests, so you're bound to find many people you connect with.

More than just a place to sleep

Students come to Trinity because they are looking for more than just somewhere to sleep. They want to make lasting friendships, share experiences and further their academic and cultural pursuits.

Did we mention that the University of Melbourne is also conveniently located next door?
