Open Days, Events and Visits

Trinity Hall welcomes prospective applicants to visit both the University and the College. Visiting Trinity Hall is one of the best ways to get a feel for the place and learn about life studying and socialising here. We run several Trinity Hall Open Days and Subject Taster Days throughout the year, and take part in the University’s wider Open Days each July; these are primarily aimed at sixth-form students and mature prospective applicants who are considering applying to Cambridge and would like to know more about the University, the Colleges, courses available, student life and the admissions process.

You must register in advance to attend some talks and sessions over the two days, but booking to visit Trinity Hall is not required. Please visit the University website to find out when and how to book, and to discover more about what you can expect over the two days.


Please note that attendance at an Open Day or Subject Taster Event is not a prerequisite for applying, and those who apply without having attended one of these events are not at a disadvantage with regard to admissions.

Visiting Trinity Hall

If you are considering applying to Trinity Hall but are unable to attend one of our events (or there aren’t any open for bookings), you are very welcome to look around Trinity Hall on an alternative date. If you would like to look around on a self-guided tour, please visit Trinity Hall’s Central Site Porters Lodge and introduce yourself as a potential applicant – the Porters will let you know whether it is possible at that time for you to look around Central Site.

Alternatively, please contact slo@trinhall.cam.ac.uk to enquire about being shown around by Trinity Hall’s Schools Liaison Officer.

Trinity Hall runs many different events for prospective applicants. You can find out more about our other Schools Liaison and Outreach work on the Access and Outreach webpage of this website.

Parents/Guardians

We are keen to meet as many prospective applicants as we can through our Open Days and Subject Taster Events, which unfortunately means that we are unable to include parents and guardians in the main programme or offer them lunch. However, our events occasionally include parent/guardian-specific sessions, and parents and guardians are welcome to explore the College grounds at their leisure.

Visitors with Disabilities

Please let us know in advance if there is anything we can do to make your visit easier.

Open Day Travel Fund

The Open Day Travel Fund assists young people who are in care and care leavers, with travel to any of 100+ open days organised by the University and Colleges of Cambridge. Further information is available on the University website.
