Information for Offer-holders

Offer-holders for entry in October 2016/17

Congratulations on holding an offer to study at Trinity College. We hope that you will achieve success in your exams and you will join us here to study in October. This webpage contains some information on what happens next and will be updated with freshers’ information nearer the start of the new academic year.

When will I hear from Trinity

April/May – Letters about accommodation, disability disclosure, UMS scores and Financial Guarantee Declarations

Mid-August – Letter following examination results stating whether or not we are able to confirm your place

Early Sept – Communication (from our Tutorial Office) about arrangements for joining the College in October 2016 International Students

Fees and Funding

A copy of the ‘Financial Arrangements for Undergraduates’ document that was enclosed with your offer letter is available here.


For any accommodation queries, please contact the Accommodation Office

Will the College still accept me if I miss the grades set in my conditional offer?

We are not usually able to offer many places to students who have missed their offers although we may do so in a few cases where we feel this is warranted. These decisions are taken when the A-level results are published and when we have a sense of the strength of the full subject entry for that year.

What happens if I miss my offer and my school applies for a re-mark?

You have to meet the terms of our offer by 31 August. If you apply for a re-mark and, as a result, show us that you have met your offer by 31 August we will still accept you. If your re-mark is successful but the result is not known to us until after 1 September then we may offer you a deferred place for entry in October 2017 (at the least). Please keep in close contact with us if you are applying for a re-mark.

Does the College hold a waiting list or have spare places to fill in August?

The College does not hold a waiting list nor do we consider new Cambridge applicants in August.

Can I visit the College?

You are very welcome to look round the College at any time. Upon arrival at the College, just tell the porters at the Great Gate that you are an offer-holder.
