Accommodation

We know that where and how you make your home has a big impact on what you’re able to gain from and give to the community during your time here, and that’s especially true for those relocating to Bristol to study with us.

We help the students moving to join into our residential community to find housing near Trinity or the parish where you’ll be doing context training during college. If you’re bringing a family with you we can help you think about local schools. If you have a specific part of Bristol you’re already connected to or want to engage with we’ll do our best to explore all the possible local living options.

We can house up to 45 people in our on-site Carter building. In an average year, a close-knit community of between 25 and 30 single and weekly commuter students live in Carter, as well as two other nearby houses. The Carter building offers a separate keycode for residents to ensure privacy, its own large kitchen with adjacent dining area for Carter students’ breakfasts and suppers when desired, and kitchenettes on every corridor with a sink, kettle, and toaster. Lunches are shared with the larger Trinity community in the main dining hall. Read what our Carter reps have put together about life in Carter >

For our students who are married and those with families, Trinity owns or leases many properties that are mostly within a 3-mile radius of college, and we can also help direct you to agencies for private rentals. We recognise that your housing will impact your time at college, and we will prayerfully pursue with you what could be the best fit during your time here.

We would love to talk more with you about which of our accommodation options would suit you best, so feel free to ask us about it at an Open Day or just contact our admissions team to find out more.
