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:
- Humanities Residential (Year 12) 9th-11th April 2019
- Law Residential (Year 12) 1st-3rd July 2019
- Trinity Stonehouse Residential (Year 11) 8th-11th July 2019
- Biology and Medicine Residential (Year 12) 31st July – 3rd August 2019
- Women in STEM (Year 12) 19th-22nd August 2019
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.

This form is also used to apply for 2019 residentials at Peterhouse, Pembroke and Homerton colleges. Please check individual college websites for details.
Application forms for Law and the Y11 Stonehouse Residential can be found on their individual pages once applications open.
“In order to maintain Trinity’s fine academic tradition, we need constantly to explore new sources of untapped potential. We are committed to admitting the most promising students, and are therefore eager to attract the widest possible field of outstanding applicants.”
~ Lord Rees, Former Master of Trinity College
