Undergraduate Study



My favourite aspect of Trinity is the sense of community that the College fosters. You become an integral part of Trinity’s tradition and innovation, an important recipient of and contributor to the opportunities that are offered, and an active participant in determining the College’s legacy.


Trinity provides a large and diverse community in which to live, work and play. We offer high-quality accommodation, a central location on the river, excellent meals in Hall and extensive sports facilities.

Trinity has a long tradition of academic excellence. We welcome all those who have the ability and determination to succeed, whatever their background. Tutors, Directors of Studies and supervisors work closely with our students to engage them in the wide range of educational and research opportunities that the College and the University opens up to them.

The setting of the College serves to inspire. There is some magnificent architecture at the heart of Trinity – Great Court, the Chapel, the Hall, Nevile’s Court, the Wren Library – but there are also fine modern buildings, including an attractive development at Burrell’s Field, a short walk away through the beautiful College gardens.

There is a lively Students’ Union that organises a wide variety of social events, and a popular student centre with common rooms and a bar. Undergraduates can live in College throughout the full length of their course, and all rooms have internet connections.

We are actively committed to widening participation. We host residential and other visits to the College, and work closely with educational charities to encourage applications from all schools, further education colleges and sixth forms, including those with little or no experience of Cambridge.

You can learn more about Trinity by booking a place at an open day, or just by visiting the College informally to have a look around. Our website contains comprehensive information and the Admissions Office is happy to deal with further enquiries.
