Accommodation at

Trinity

Undergraduate

Accommodation

Trinity is one of the Colleges that guarantee students College accommodation throughout their degree.  This means that you can always live with other students from Trinity, and you never have to worry about renting a room from a landlord, although you can choose to live out if you prefer. 

We have 180 student rooms on our main site, 63 of which are ensuite. Not all rooms are the same: They differ in bathroom facilities (ensuite vs shared), size (large vs standard) and aspect (quad facing vs street facing). They are all well equipped with wifi and fridges.

Our new Levine Building, which will be open for use in 2022, will add an additional 46 ensuite rooms for students. Read more about the building here.

Undergraduate

Room Tour

Take a quick tour of some of the undergraduate accommodation that is available to students at Trinity and find out more about where you could be living. 

Freshers accommodation

When you arrive for your first day at Trinity, you will have been allocated a room on the main Trinity site. (If you have special medical needs we should take into account, please let us know when we confirm your place in mid-August.) Current students will help you move your luggage in, and you will be able to meet the people who live on the same staircase. Most freshers live on a staircase with other freshers, which is a great way to get to know people in your year group.

Second-year accommodation

In the second year, many students are housed on the main Trinity site, and others in offsite College-owned properties. Rooms for second years are allocated by a ballot process. Some students opt for single study-bedrooms; others like to share a ‘set’ with a friend, which means they have a shared sitting room as well as two bedrooms.  Most of the rooms on the very popular Garden Quad are chosen by second years, as they are spacious with lots of light, and offer fantastic views over the college lawns. Some second years live in one of Trinity’s properties on Rawlinson Road (about fifteen minutes from the college), where they share a kitchen with friends in the same flat.

Third year and beyond

In your third year (and fourth year if you do a four-year course), you can live in one of the well-appointed blocks of flats which Trinity owns on the Woodstock Road, a 15-minute walk north of the College (or five minutes by bike or bus). This lets you share a kitchen and bathroom with friends, while having your own study-bedroom.

The Old Nunnery

This location features some single study-bedrooms (some en-suite, some with shared bathrooms, and all using a large shared kitchen). It also has a large, very modern common room with piano, flat-screen TV, comfy chairs; a large study area (with printers and wifi); and a gym / dance space. All our Trinity students living in north Oxford can use these facilities. See the gallery below for images of the Nunnery accommodation and facilities.

Practicalities

Each of the college’s properties (on the main site and on the north Oxford sites) contains a laundry room equipped with washing machines, tumble dryers and irons for students’ use.

If you have accommodation needs related to a disability, we do our very best to help. For more information, have a look at our Students with Disabilities Guide.

Insurance is included in all room rentals courtesy of an agreement between Trinity College and Endsleigh insurance. Details are available for download.

Graduate

Accommodation

Single accommodation is available for graduates at Trinity for their first year and often for subsequent years. This means that you can live with other students from Trinity, and you don’t have to worry about renting a room from a landlord. Some postgraduate students live on the graduate staircase on the main site, others in our north-Oxford graduate properties. Our new Levine Building will allow more postgraduate students an option of living on our main site from 2022.

Postgraduate

Room Tour

Most of our postgraduate applications don't get the chance to visit Trinity in person; if you can't come see us but wonder what your accommodation might be like in college, this video shows you the range of rooms and accommodation facilities on offer to postgraduates.

Onsite and offsite locations

Accommodation is provided on the main site for some graduates in their first year (mainly international students who have not previously lived in Oxford). Most other graduates have rooms in the graduate annexes on Rawlinson Road in north Oxford, about 15 minutes walk (or five minutes by bus or bike) from the main college.

Graduates have their own study-bedroom and share a kitchen / dining area and a bathroom with a small group of other graduates. This is a good way to get to know other graduates when you arrive.

We also have some single study-bedrooms (some en-suite, some with shared bathrooms, and all using a large shared kitchen) in the Old Nunnery building which Trinity owns on the Woodstock Road. The Old Nunnery also has a large, very modern common room with piano, flat-screen TV, comfy chairs; a large study area (with printers and wifi); and a gym / dance space. All our students living in north Oxford can use these facilities.
