Housing Facilities and Charges

For degree candidates who are enrolled in at least 6 credit hours per semester, student housing is provided in seminary-owned facilities based on space available and program status. The seminary provides housing for non-degree students (e.g., TEEM, Certificate) on a space-available basis.

Single Efficiency Suites


Trinity's Schenk Hall efficiency suites have private sleeping and living areas and are air-conditioned. Some suites have a shared bath between units. Kitchenettes in each unit feature an under-counter refrigerator and a microwave. For additional cooking needs, Trinity House (a nearby community gathering spot) offers a complete kitchen. While most suites are not accessible by elevator, the Shodde/Stellhorn building is handicap-accessible.

Schenk Hall efficiency units come furnished with a long twin bed, dresser, table and chair, desk, and armchair. Students provide their own dishes, utensils, linens, phone, TV, computer, clock, paper products, iron, ironing board, vacuum, and cleaning supplies. A coin laundry, chest freezers for residents and bike racks are located in the basement of each building.

Each unit is wired to allow access to the Trinity Network which includes access to the Internet, local access to e-mail, as well as access to some of the library's CD-ROM resources. The units are also wired for standard cable and telephones. The service for landline telephones is the responsibility of each student.

Smoking is prohibited in all suites and pets are not allowed.

Single occupancy in Schenk Hall efficiencies is $3,078 per academic year for 2011-12, payable $1,539 per semester. (The academic year is defined as orientation week through the last day of class in the spring semester.)

A room deposit of $200 is required before moving into the dormitory. No adjustment will be made for students who elect to study off-campus during the January term. A student occupying a dormitory efficiency during the summer will be charged $30 per night. Contact the Campus Housing Coordinator for further information.

Because there are a variety of floor plans for the efficiency suites, they are not posted here. You can, however, catch a glimpse of a room on the virtual campus tour.
