Spouses and families at Trinity
Our students’ spouses and children are a valued part of the Trinity community, and we offer many different opportunities for families to experience and enjoy college life together.
Connect for spouses
If you’d like to find out more about Connect (as well as loads of helpful information about transitioning into life at Trinity) you can download the newest Connect Handbook here.
Connect also has a very active private Facebook group for general support, socialising ideas, and local information and advice. You can also email the Connect Exec at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meals and worship together
The daily chapel and weekly Communion services are open to spouses and once a term a student leadership team runs the all-age Light Experiment specifically designed to engage your whole family. Spouses and children are always welcome at mealtimes too, for only a small cost, and we have plenty of high chairs and child-friendly plates and cutlery.
We have our own Ofsted-registered day nursery on campus which, as well as serving the families of Trinity students, is open to the public, so it offers a great chance to get to know other families in the local area. Muddy Boots Day Nursery offers care between 8.00 am – 6 pm, and the children of full-time Trinity students are able to attend for a significantly subsidised fee.
Further education for spouses
We welcome all student spouses to take advantage of their time at Trinity and audit classes for free (which means you would come to the lectures without having to do any of the assessments). If you are really keen and want to take classes for credit, anyone whose spouse is studying full time is eligible for a 50 percent reduction on fees for many of our programmes, whether you do a few modules or actually enrol on an accredited course.
