Yes, you are welcome to visit the College during normal opening hours – please contact the Porter’s Lodge (01223 332500) for more information.

10. What support/facilities are available for families (childcare) and partners? +-

Trinity Hall has accommodation suitable for students with partners, consisting of twelve self-contained flats at the Wychfield site.  Unfortunately we are unable to house families with children.

The College welcomes permanent resident partners of graduate students and recognises a partner as a full member of the MCR (and makes no charge).  We try to be as understanding and as accommodating as possible but would ask for the following few conditions to be met:
– That your partner live with you in Cambridge
– That your partner not be a member of another College
– That you ‘register’ your partner with the Tutorial Office via email
