In accordance with the University’s admissions policy, we welcome applicants from all backgrounds, and are committed to ensuring each student benefits fully from their three or four years at Trinity. Our excellent facilities and welcoming student community are the ideal basis for academic success.


Trinity is in the very centre of Oxford: the Bodleian Library is just a few metres from our main entrance on Broad Street, while the main Science Area is less than 5 minutes’ walk from our back gate on Parks Road.

Accommodation and meals

Undergraduates are guaranteed college-owned accommodation for the complete duration of their course. This is on the main college site for the first two years. In their second year some students opt to share a ‘set’ with a friend, with a bedroom each, connected to a shared living area; others opt for a study bedroom. Our third-/fourth-year accommodation is less than 15 minutes’ walk (or 5 minutes by bike) north of the college.

The food at Trinity is outstanding, and we cater for all dietary requirements. We also have kitchen facilities for students wanting to cook for themselves.

Trinity provides excellent facilities, as well as generous bursaries, to help students reach their full potential.

All student accommodation has internet access and there are computer rooms with free printing for students. The library is open 24 hours a day and aims to provide copies of all books that undergraduates need.

On site are an undergraduate common room, college bar, a squash court, gym, and music practice rooms. We are well equipped for music-making, with a baby grand piano and organ in chapel which are free for students to use, as well as three additional pianos on site. Our sports ground is 15 minutes away, with provision for cricket, football, hockey, rugby and tennis. The boathouse is on the main stretch of the river.

Student societies

Our students are involved in a wide range of activities. The Trinity Players stage at least two productions a year, including one on our lawns. Women’s and men’s teams flourish in most sports. Our choir is non-auditioning, and gives recitals both in Oxford and on tour, in recent years visiting Tuscany, Budapest and Madrid. We also have a college orchestra, and smaller music groups. Many subjects have their own societies, hosting guest speakers and social events. There is also a debating society, a college newspaper and a careers society.
