Why Choose Trinity

Trinity College is so much more than just a place to sleep.


Let some of our students and alumni explain what Trinity is all about

You'll live on a beautiful campus in the best location

We're conveniently located next door to the University of Melbourne (don't underestimate the value of a sleep in!) and are lucky to have stunningly beautiful grounds, which you could soon call home. Click the below video and one of our students will show you around.

Everything is tailored to undergraduates

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 have a graduate program available off-campus. This program plays a small but special role in the college – with postgrad students providing student mentoring and study hall supervision to support our undergraduates throughout the year. Unfortunately we don't currently offer a non-residential program. 

Making friends is easy

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 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 (and food!) on campus.

Because we're not too big and not too small (we have around 380 students in 2020, following the opening of our beautiful new building), 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.

It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience

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.

You don't want to leave uni feeling like you didn't make the most of it, because this is a precious time of your life that you'll never get back.

Students at Trinity live a #noregrets life, given they get to put their hand up for all sorts of activities and events while getting support for their studies and having a fabulously fun time in the process.
