All full-time commuter students get free 15 meals loaded on their student card at the beginning of the year. Meals can be used at the Strachan Hall, Trinity’s Dining Hall.
Unsure of what to do in between classes? Don’t worry, Trinity has a bunch of common spaces available for commuters to hang out during the school year. Non-Resident Affairs Committee (NRAC) common space is one of the most popular places for commuters to hang out. The common space is located in Melinda Seaman Hall at the St. Hilda’s residence building. The room has regularly replenished snacks, video games, and printer (to help you with last-minute printing of your assignments/papers/important stuff). The NRAC common room also hosts monthly dinners prior to the Trinity College Meeting (basically, Trinity’s Student Governance meeting).
A second most popular spot among the commuters is the first floor of the Larkin building, commonly known as the Buttery. The Buttery serves as a study lounge and has a small café on the first floor, where you can buy something quick to eat. Buttery café’s selection includes items such as pizza, sandwiches, coffee (proudly served by Starbucks) and pastries (Almond croissant is a must-try!).
