Residential College fees 2024
Living at Trinity means so much more than a room and a bed! We offer many support services, activities and opportunities that you may not get access to through other university accommodation providers, so you should definitely consider this when making your decision about where to live while studying.
Essentially, living at Trinity College is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that sets you up with valuable friendships and connections for life. You can't really put a price on that. As we often say, once a Trinitarian, always a Trinitarian!
That said, we realise living at Trinity does come at a cost, so here's what you can expect from your fees.

The schedule applies to students residing at Trinity College for the full academic year. Undergraduates are in residence for 36 weeks (two 18-week semesters, including exam periods and term breaks). Students are required to vacate their rooms during the mid-semester break. Semester-break stays are occasionally available at the discretion of the Dean of College and subject to an additional charge. Please note the following rates apply to credit card payments: domestic credit cards 0.4%, international credit cards 2.8%, AMEX 1.65%.
Trinity College provides a range of payment options to assist budgeting for residence and to encourage the timely payment of fees. Families in demonstrated financial need with concerns about fee payment are encouraged to discuss their situation in confidence with the Dean of the Residential College at the earliest opportunity.
Wherever possible, it is expected that students will remain in residence for the full year. A separate schedule of fees applies to those students on a study abroad or exchange program, or those who are seeking residence for one semester only. If you are going on an overseas exchange or are completing your university studies mid-year, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Bonds are refunded when a student leaves Trinity College permanently, subject to:
As students tell us time and time again – absolutely. Here's what one of our young alumni had to say:
"I have friends from my old school doing the same uni course as me who don’t live on campus and they aren’t getting the chance to enjoy uni life in the same way I am."
Your university years are precious and are something you can't get back. So make the most of the rare opportunity to live within a community of like-minded students, get involved in as many activities as you can, ace your studies, and have a tonne of fun.
