As we adapt to the realities of COVID-19, changes were made to this Fall semester. Details along with updates related to Orientation and Move-In are available on the COVID-19 Updates page. Visit this page for the official, up-to-date details.
Welcome to the residence halls. Trinity University works to make your move-in experience as smooth as possible.
Students will get tested for COVID-19 in Laurie Auditorium, check-in with Residential Life staff, and receive their Tiger Card. The driver must remain in the vehicle. Then you and your guest will head over to your residence hall and unload your belongings into your new room!
If you brought a family member or guest: Students will get tested for COVID-19 in Laurie Auditorium, check-in with Residential Life staff, and receive their Tiger Card. The driver must remain in the vehicle. Then you and your guest will head over to your residence hall and unload your belongings into your new room!
If you came alone: Stay with the Trinity volunteers as they unload your car. Then park and go directly to your residence hall floor to pick up your NSO schedule from your Resident Assistant. Unlock your door for the volunteers. Afterwards, walk to Bell Center and continue the check-in process. At the Bell Center, we take your yearbook photo and produce the Tiger Card you'll need for your meal plan and will also be used as your room key. You'll also receive your parking tag.
Once you've arrived on campus, please report to the Bell Center to pick up your room key, take your yearbook photo, get your TigerCard, and more. You'll meet your Transfer O-Teamer who will assist you with the move-in process.
Many of these items are readily available at nearby San Antonio stores.
Students are not permitted to remove University furniture from their rooms.
The staff matches roommates and suitemates based on the general lifestyle criteria listed below. We believe that these basic habits are important areas of roommate compatibility.
We ask that you prepare yourself to be accepting and respectful of others in your living area and bring with you to the Trinity community an enthusiasm to interact with all types of people. The Trinity University Residential Life staff believes in providing a diverse living environment within our first year residence halls. To foster this kind of environment, we will not accept specific roommate and/or hall requests nor will we make room assignment changes based on these issues.
In our experience, the best roommates are those who practice communication, courtesy and compromise. Regardless of your individual habits and quirks, these interpersonal skills will make for a positive environment in your room and prepare you well for life. Start practicing communication, courtesy and compromise with your roommate this summer as soon as you receive their contact information with your assignment.
students will select their roommates as they move into Sophomore College and then into the Junior/Senior living areas.
