  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
This college is great if you want to become successful in life. Since its a liberal arts college it prepares you in other fields of study that do not directly relate to your major. Campus life is wonderfully filled with a diversity of people who are friendly and accepting.
Hard working student
Trinity College is a great place to be challenged academically. Both academics and social life are important here as long as you can find a healthy balance between the two. In coming to Trinity College you should be prepared to meet different types of people of different cultures.
