Accommodation

Student sitting in room

Trinity Hall offers a variety of accommodation to both its undergraduate and postgraduate students. Accommodation ranges from characterful rooms in 14th-century buildings, to ‘retro’ 1960s student blocks, to modern en-suite rooms in our latest building, WYNG Gardens, which was completed in 2016. All rooms are fully furnished with a bed, desk and chair, wardrobe space, and many with comfy chairs or even sofas. See below for descriptions of our three sites: Central Site, Thompson’s Lane and Wychfield. You can explore each of these sites on our Virtual Tour.

One room on Central Site is available for a wheelchair user, with an adapted bathroom close by, and there are seven wheelchair-accessible rooms with en-suite facilities at Wychfield (two of which have linking rooms for carers). The Disability Access Guide provides full details of the College’s facilities for disabled students.

 

Undergraduates

At Trinity Hall, we provide all undergraduates with College accommodation for the first three or four years of their course. First-year students are allocated rooms by the College according to price band, and students are asked to indicate a preference. Second-, third- and fourth-year students choose their own rooms via a student-run ballot.

Undergraduates are housed in: Central Site, Wychfield and Thompson’s Lane (see below).

Postgraduates

Full-time postgraduate students may apply for accommodation and we will do our best to house them according to availability. We are unable to provide accommodation for part-time students.

Please note that most of our accommodation consists of single rooms, and whilst we have small number of flats for couples, we are unable to provide accommodation for families.

Postgraduates are accommodated in: Wychfield (see below).
