While the buildings and grounds make Trinity a unique environment to which so many students are drawn, their Grade I listed building status means that they are costly to maintain. Offering the many services on which students rely is also expensive.
In addition to the upkeep of the buildings, there is a continual need to improve study bedrooms, update IT facilities, replace books in the Library, subscribe to essential online journals and ensure that the college is as energy efficient as possible.
All of this is necessary as Trinity must provide the modern facilities that are expected of a leading educational institution. This is a significant financial burden and donations from Old Members and Friends are instrumental in allowing us to make ongoing improvements.
