Experience Life as a Bantam

We chose you; now the choice is yours.

To help you with your decision, we invite you to take a closer look at Trinity and to explore all our college has to offer.

We look forward to welcoming you to campus.

Bantam Visit Days

Bantam Visit Days is our large, open-house style admitted student event. Attendees will be able to take a master class, visit one of Trinity's labs, meet faculty at our academic fair, and explore some of Trinity's student-run clubs and organizations. You'll also be able to interact with current Trinity students throughout the day, and hear more about some of the great things our graduates are doing in Hartford and beyond.

Join the Bantams

Join the Bantams is designed to give students, who cannot attend Bantam Visit Days or who want a shorter program, a close look at Trinity. The day will include lunch with faculty members, a panel, and a tour, followed by the opportunity to explore campus on their own. This may include attending classes, as well.

Coffee with a Bantam

Throughout the month of April, we invite you to come to campus for a conversation with a current Trinity senior. This is your opportunity to have your questions answered. Along with your coffee conversation, you can take a campus tour, sit in on a class or two, and find out if Trinity is right for you. Appointments are available weekdays in April. To reserve your coffee conversation, contact the Admissions Office at 860-297-2180 or

Come for a Campus Tour

If you are unable to attend any of our Admitted Student Events, schedule a campus tour with one of our enthusiastic student guides. Our campus tours are available multiple times a day, departing from the lobby of the Admissions and Career Development Center. Tours and information sessions are available Mondays through Fridays, as well as some select Saturdays, throughout the spring. To register for a campus tour and/or an information session, please check out our campus visit registration page.
