Many Trinity students live on campus and it's easy to understand why:
- convenience to classes
- great access to professors, library and labs
- building friendship with hall and floor mates
- getting involved in campus activities
Roommate compatibility is one of the goals in making housing assignments, through ways of expressing faith; tastes in clothing, music, friends; extracurricular interests; housekeeping styles; habits of sleep and study. Part of the educational experience at Trinity is learning how to live with and care for other people. Having a roommate or suitemate will not always be easy but it is our goal that students learn to appreciate and respect each other. Please contact your Area Director or the Student Life Office if you have questions or concerns.
Where Will I Live?
Where Will I Live?
West Hall offers housing on four different floors (two female, two male) for a combination of First Time Freshmen, Incoming Transfers, and Returning Students. This mixed approach to housing gives new and returning students the opportunity to develop friendships and connections with each other.
West Hall suites consist of an entryway, two bedrooms, a walk-in closet, and a bathroom. Each floor houses between 20-40 students. West Hall offers Central Air Conditioning and an Elevator.
Students love living in West Hall for its convenient floor lounges and huge basement recreation/social area (equipped with couches, kitchenette, tables and booths, ping pong, and billiards).
South Hall primarily houses first-time freshmen on several different floors. Each floor contains a recently-renovated floor lounge with lots of comfortable, cushioned seating, and there are two larger public lounges on the main floor and basement where students can gather for social events.
Each suite in South Hall contains two bedrooms, a large walk-in closet, and bathroom. The floors in South Hall are different sizes, so a resident may have anywhere from 15-34 neighbors on his/her floor.
Tibstra Hall offers apartment-style housing for upper class students on three different floors. Each apartment consists of a full kitchen (microwave, refrigerator, oven/stove included), living room, two bedrooms, and a bathroom.
