 The Residential Life Office offers a developmental program tailored to the needs of the residents. New students are housed together in the First Year Area, with a supportive environment and program. In the Sophomore College, second year students live in vibrant communities where studying abroad, selecting majors, service, and social justice are emphasized. In the upper-class area, students enjoy a community-based environment where programs about career development and life after college are offered through the Senior Year Experience.

Our mission is to share and promote the value of living on campus as an integral component of the Trinity educational experience, embracing the benefits of a caring, diverse, and dynamic community.

Residential Facilities
At Trinity, the southern half of campus enjoys views of downtown San Antonio and features all of the residential and athletic facilities. It is known as "lower campus" because it sits in the basin of the old stone quarry.

Trinity is proud to have been named as the school with "dorms like palaces".  We think they are comfortable for our residents. Even better, though, is the on-campus living environment, which is a reflection of our bright, energetic, and kind students. All halls are coed by suite. The suite style features two double rooms which share an adjoining bathroom.  The residence halls are designed to serve students as they manage academic, personal, social, and emotional issues and concerns.
