Trinity College

About the college

Trinity is a medium-sized college with a great central location in the heart of the city centre. We encourage openness and engagement: with each other in college, with the wider university, with the local community, and with the world at large.

Trinity is progressive, dynamic, supportive and welcomes everyone. 


Trinity wants to support the widest diversity of talent: whatever your background, we think you will find your place and feel at home in our community. 

We provide accommodation for all years of an undergraduate course and our food is renowned as among the best in Oxford. Our excellent facilities, generous bursaries and welcoming student community will support you to thrive and experience the best of what Oxford has to offer.

Our students are involved in a wide range of activities, and reflect a diverse and inclusive community. We have a range of active student societies and sports teams, as well as an annual Arts Week and a group of committed Student Ambassadors who contribute to our access work in Oxford and beyond. 

Our non-auditioned choir gives recitals both in Oxford and on tour, in recent years visiting Tuscany, Budapest and Madrid. Many subjects also have their own societies, hosting guest speakers and social events.

'…a super friendly community; the size of our student body means that we all know each other well!'

'…down to earth and friendly, set in spectacular surroundings.'

'…always feeling welcomed and appreciated.'

Getting in touch with the college linked to your region has no influence on your chances of being accepted to this or any other particular college. You are also very welcome to get in touch with any other college for advice about applying or studying here.

Our outreach priorities

The Access Team at Trinity College prioritise outreach engagement with schools, in our linked regions, on the basis of specific needs related to lower rates of progression to higher education, to the Russell Group universities and to the University of Oxford.

We also prioritise engagement with under-represented and disadvantaged groups of students.
