Residence Life

Welcome to Trinidad State Residence Life
The Residence Life staff promotes an environment conducive to the creation of respectful and supportive learning communities. Such communities actively promote, teach, model, and reward an environment that respects social responsibility and healthy life choices free of addictive behaviors. Our staff serves and works with students, faculty, staff, and the local community to provide a healthy and safe environment necessary for learning.

We are proud of our programs for housing students on campus where they can be surrounded by a number of opportunities for academic, cultural, and social growth. Living in a residence hall provides an overall educational experience that contributes to the student’s development. Group living challenges each student to develop a new personal awareness, to exchange ideas and to explore serious commitments to learning. One of the most rewarding aspects of the college experience is residence life.
