Welcome to the Trinity College community! We are excited to welcome your family member into our community. The transition to university life is an exciting and challenging experience for students and their families alike. The intent of this webpage is to provide you information and resources to support you, your student and your family.

STUDENT CONFIDENTIALITY

Trinity College is required by law to protect each student’s confidentiality. This means that access to information about your student is different than it was during high school. University faculty and staff can only share details of a student’s enrollment, finances and other aspects of student life with the student themselves. We understand that this transition can be challenging for both students and family members. However, learning to manage administrative responsibilities is also an important part of every student’s development – a process our staff are very experienced in supporting them through. We encourage students to engage with faculty and staff when they have questions, comments or concerns, as well as to talk to you, their parents and families, about their experience here at university.
