Residential Visits

Every year, Trinity College runs a number of residential programmes for Year 12s, and one for Year 11s, who are keen to explore their subject outside of school and experience what it would be like to study at a top university. Students on these residentials stay in college accommodation, meet current Cambridge students and have taster lectures, seminars and supervisions in a variety of subjects. They also have the opportunity to explore the city, and take part in a number of social activities during the week. The residentials are entirely free, including accommodation and all food, and funds are available to cover transport costs to and from Cambridge if necessary. Our upcoming residentials include:

Trinity’s residential programmes form a significant part of the College’s widening participation programme. As such, we are particularly keen to identify and receive applications from students: with little or no family tradition of higher education; whose school sends few applicants to Cambridge or Oxford; who have spent any time in care; or who have been eligible for free school meals.

Please check the individual pages below for more information, including selection criteria and closing dates.

Application forms for Law and the Y11 Stonehouse Residential can be found on their individual pages once applications open.
