Campus Housing

A little bit of luxury never hurt anyone. And let’s face it, college is hard. So it’s nice to be able to study and relax in comfort. From the newly built Golf Course Apartments to the townhouse-style villas of Campus Village, it’s easy to see why Trine undergraduate students are excited about on-campus living. Our new student apartments make dormitory-style living a thing of the past. And everyone—not just seniors—can enjoy our new facilities.

Exceptional Communities 

Check out any college or university across the country and you’re unlikely to find another that has campus-owned apartments with views of a golf course, fireplaces in the student lounges, and laundry facilities in your own apartment complex. At Trine, you will. And you’ll live in a community of your peers, where you’ll be in the midst of campus activities—from Library Putt-Putt to sand volleyball and more. 

Start Living in Luxury

Over the past decade alone, we’ve spent more than $176 million on renovations and new facilities across campus, including student housing. With more than 10 options—from the Golf Course Apartments to Moss Street Apartments to Reiners Hall—Trine’s campus housing facilities can be described in one word: exceptional.

That's just part of what it's like living at Trine University. And it's why we take so much pride in the experience we offer.

Housing Policy

From the Trine University Student Handbook:

Trine University may terminate or temporarily suspend performance of any part of this policy, without notice, in the event Trine University’s obligations and/or duties under this policy are prevented or delayed, either directly or indirectly, by consequence of a Force Majeure Event. A Force Majeure Event means a cause or event beyond the reasonable control of Trine University, including, but not limited to, an act of God, natural disaster, act of war, act of terrorism, or act of the public enemy; national emergency, moratorium, riot, public protest, or demonstration; flood, tidal wave, fire, explosion, bomb detonation, nuclear fallout, windstorm, tornado, hurricane, sinkhole, earthquake, or other casualty, disaster, or catastrophe; epidemic, pandemic or other infectious disease, or other similar causes; any existing or future laws or acts of the Federal or any state government (including specifically, but not exclusively, any orders, rules or regulations issued by any official or agency of any such government) resulting in a complete or partial shutdown; or any other cause or causes (whether or not similar in nature to any of those specified above) beyond Trine University’s reasonable control, irrespective of whether such contingency is specified herein or is presently occurring or anticipated.

In the case of a Force Majeure event, Trine University reserves the right to determine how and by what method educational instruction will be provided to the student. Educational instruction may be provided through methods consistent with Trine University’s philosophy, as practicable under the circumstances, and at locations removed from the regular instructional rooms or buildings, including virtual instruction. Trine University assumes no responsibility or liability for failure to perform any terms or conditions of this policy due to circumstances beyond its control. No refund, recompense, or compensation is provided for tuition of fees and/or financial aid in the event Trine University must change its method of instruction, suspend or close due to a Force Majeure Event, nor retribution for discomfort. Trine University shall not be responsible for any failure to provide educational programs or instruction in the event Force Majeure conditions exist. In such event, Trine University shall not be obligated to refund any amount the student already paid pursuant to this policy. Nothing in this policy shall be construed to relieve the student of his/her payment obligations under this policy, or waive any right or claim of Trine University for payment under the terms of this policy.

If the university is forced to close residential facilities, a refund for housing will be issued to on-campus students. The credit will be based upon the week in the fall or spring semester that a closure occurs. Meal plan refunds will be on a pro-rata basis.

Week 7 – 8 …………………………...40%
