Accommodation, Catering and Facilities

Accommodation

Almost all our first-year undergraduates live in College. We strongly encourage this, as we believe that living in as a fresher is the easiest way to get the full Trevs experience. We will use your room allocation form - a form that asks you about your interests and personality - to place you on a landing with people that we think you will like.

Our first-year undergraduate contracts run from the beginning of freshers week to the last day of Easter term (September - June). Your rent covers vacation periods, so you are welcome to stay over the holidays or leave your belongings in your room.

Overall, we have absolutely loved sharing a room and we now have a bond that we don’t believe could have been achieved any other way. We have both made a friend for life and we know that next year, despite living in different houses, we will find ourselves in the other one’s house because we miss each other’s company too much.

Facilities

Trevelyan College has excellent facilities. The College is set in extensive grounds that feature various sporting facilities and gardens. During the summer months, a wide variety of College events are hosted outside in these grounds including Trevstock, our annual 12-hour music festival.

We have plenty of study space for both residents and livers out. We have a spacious library with an extensive collection of books, and IT suite equipped with printing facilities and specialist software, and a newly renovated group study lounge furnished with presentation and video equipment. During the day Trevs Bar provides a more relaxed workspace where our students can buy coffee and cake while studying.

Arriving at Trevs was a very exciting day. The ‘Freps’ were all super helpful and friendly. My room is big enough with great wardrobe space. The rooms all gather in circles so there’s loads of social space in the landings, unlike a lot of other colleges. Trevs is all one building, so getting to and from your friends’ rooms, the canteen and the library can all be done in slippers.
