At Trinity, the southern half of campus enjoys views of downtown San Antonio and features all of the residential and athletic facilities. It is known as "lower campus" because it sits in the basin of the old stone quarry.
Trinity is proud to have been named as the school with "dorms like palaces". Even better, though, is the on-campus living environment, which is a reflection of our bright, energetic, and kind students. All halls are coed by suite. The suite style features two double rooms which share an adjoining bathroom. The residence halls are designed to serve students as they manage academic, personal, social, and emotional issues and concerns.
Because being a residential campus is central to the mission of Trinity University, all unmarried undergraduate students are required to live on campus for three years (six fall and spring semesters). Students who study abroad, transfer to Trinity, or those who stop attending the University and then re-enroll may qualify for certain exceptions.
Residence halls on the east side are devoted to the first year area, which surrounds Mabee Dining Hall and the Witt Reception Center, home of the Residential Life Office. This is an exciting place to get to know the rest of your entering class and to adjust to campus life. The Resident Mentor to student ratio in these halls averages 18:1. First year area residence halls have small quiet study lounges, and one large computer lounge and game room in the Beze Underground.
