Common Rooms

Trevelyan is made up of three active common rooms, the Junior Common Room, our undergraduate community, the Middle Common Room, our postgraduate community, and the Senior Common Room, our community of staff, academics, alumni, and other friends of the College.

The three common rooms combine to create the diverse and inclusive community that is Trevelyan - a College that values every member and challenges every member to excel in new ways.

  • College Life

    From sports teams to musicals, Trevelyan offers a wide range of clubs and societies. We also have excellent facilities to support these co-curricular endeavours, including a 60-seat theatre, a soundproof recording room, and indoor and outdoor sports courts.
  • Alumni and Friends

    Trevelyan is a lifelong community. We like to think of graduation not as you are leaving our student community, but as you enter our alumni community. From events to mentorship, our alumni have so many ways to stay involved in College life.
