Trinity Hall is a community built on mutual respect.

The overriding rule in Trinity Hall is to show respect: respect each other, respect the assistant wardens, respect the RSAs, respect the cleaning staff, respect the accommodation office, respect the buildings and grounds, respect the surrounding community, and finally respect yourself.

Student Discipline Procedure

In College generally, the Junior Dean is responsible for inquiring into an alleged breach of discipline by a student and for taking further action in accordance with the College Statutes. At Trinity Hall, the functions of the Junior Dean are vested in the Warden.

Students who are reported to the Warden are interviewed by the Warden who decides upon what course of action to follow. For minor offences, where the facts of the case are agreed, the actions taken range from a fine to requesting a formal apology to the injured party. All fines are lodged to a Student Hardship Fund administered by the Senior Tutor's office. In the case of more serious offences, students may be accompanied by a person of their choice (for example, their College Tutor) when interviewed by the Warden.
