Upperclass Student Options

Housing Options for Upperclass Students

Many of our upperclass students choose to live on campus for the convenience factors, as well as to stay close and connected with the Carroll community. We understand that our upperclass students have many needs and wants for their living environments, which is why we strive to offer a variety of options.

At Carroll College, third-year and above students have a couple of options for on-campus living - Trinity Residence Hall and the Campus Apartments.

The apartments have a 12-month lease, starting in May, which allows students to live in the apartments during the summer; Trinity Hall has an academic-year housing contract which begins at the start of the academic year in August. The apartments have three-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments while Trinity Hall has four-person suites. The apartments will be unfurnished to keep the cost as affordable as possible while Trinity Hall suites are furnished. Rent and utilities will be billed monthly in the apartments; the cost of housing for Trinity Hall must be paid in full at the beginning of each semester unless the student is on a monthly budget plan.

Below, you will see some tables of information to help you decide which on-campus living situation is right for you.
