Celebrating 150 Years

In 2022, Trinity College is celebrating its 150th anniversary.

The College has come a long way since the first student enrolled in 1872, yet our underlying values and commitment to providing the very best educational and residential experience to talented young people remains.

Join us as we flip through the history pages of the last 150 years. There have been highs, there have been lows, there has been laughter, there have been tears. There are all the things that make a good story.

Trinity College has nurtured fun and friendship for 150 years. Here are some of our alumni’s fondest memories from their time at College (and we’re sure plenty of other people in our community can remember or relate to these!).

My fondest memory is singing the College song at the close of O-Week. This is always such a special moment shared between both freshers and returning students, creating a bond that has been proven to last a lifetime. Lachie Gall (TC 2019)

My best friends and I before our valedictory dinner. This was the first normal event after two years of COVID-19, and also unfortunately one of our last events during our time at Trinity. We were all very excited! Celia Purvis (TC 2019)

This photo was taken at our final sit down dinner in third year. Sit down dinners were such a highlight for me during my time at Trinity. Whether it was formal hall or V-dinner, we always got up to some sort of mischief. Harry Croser (TC 2019).
