Clubs and Societies

At Trinity, there's a wealth of student-run societies for you to get involved in - in addition to all the usual university-wide societies that you can sign up for. So have a look at what's on offer, and if you're interested, do get in touch!

Boat Club 2024 Image.jpeg


Trinity College Boat Club (TCBC), founded c. 1838, aims to be the best college boat club in Oxford. By joining together for this excellent team sport and continuing to teach new members to row, TCBC has won a pair of blades every year since 2011; W1 in summer 2021, M3 in spring 2022, W1 in summer 2023 and with the amazing help of new members and new ambition we look forward to seeing some amazing performances in the 2024 bumps season. We have also started to broaden our horizons by taking part in national competitions outside of Oxford, giving members the chance to explore UK rowing and spread our victories across the country.

If you are interested in representing Trinity College in this centuries old Oxford Tradition, please get in contact!

Music Society

Trinity College Music Society is open to all college members and is a source of help with funding, publicity or anything else music related. The music society hosts a termly 'President's Concert' - an excellent opportunity for musicians of all kind to come and perform in front of their peers and, of course, the President herself! We also host termly Open Mic and Karaoke nights, and joint concerts featuring Trinity's musical ensembles. In the past we've had music from Oxford's World Music Society, classical string players, solo singers, electric guitar players, and many more. We have also hosted professional masterclasses by musicians such as Maxim Vengerov (pictured).

Christian Union

The Trinity Christian Union is joint with St Johns, and we meet once a week to do Bible studies intended for those of all faiths to start conversations. OICCU's mission statement is to allow every student to hear and respond to the news of Jesus and this is what we work towards by creating a loving and open environment. We also have socials, often including ice cream and will go as a group to OICCU events including central.



Trinity netball is a super relaxed and friendly way to get involved with sport at Trinity! We play mixed teams, so boys are welcome, as is any standard (some of our players cough the boys have certainly never played before) so even if you're new to netball come and get stuck in. We play league matches in Michaelmas and Hilary with some potential inter-college tournament days in Trinity term. See you there!

Law Society

Trinity Law Soc is a ‘career-focused’ society where we wish to help our members build legal awareness as well as connections with professionals in the legal community, particularly commercial Law Firms in London.  Our members consist of a diverse range of subject across Trinity who may want to a pursue a career in law in the future - no degree too far removed from the law! 

Previous events Trinity Law Society has organised include a Freshfields Insight Dinner; a visit to the Slaughter & May’s offices; and most famously, at the end of Hilary term, the annual Michael Beloff Law Society Dinner which last year hosted Dame Victoria Sharp DBE as guest speaker.  

Our aspirations for the year, alongside hosting these previous events, include hosting more talks and debates in association with the Griffin Society as well as creating connections with leading professionals and Chambers at the Bar.

Football Club 2024.jpeg


Football at Trinity, while having a rocky start over the past few years, has seen a resurgence this year after last year's captain, Jamie, rebuilt the club essentially from the ground up. We have been blessed with a golden generation of freshers bringing serious and much needed talent to many positions in which we were previously lacking, and now stand a legitimate chance chance at challenging for the league title. While Trinity now seem to be almost good at football, it doesn't stop the environment from being relaxed, friendly and welcoming - everybody's main goal being to have a laugh and a kickabout. Whether you're looking for a proper game of football or just want to kick a ball, we can accommodate you. If you're not convinced yet, please check put our Instagram to see what we're up to.

What better way to spend your summer days/avoid revising than joining TCCC? A friendly and relaxed atmosphere coupled with a healthy sense of competition make it a club well worth being a part of. Matches take place throughout Trinity term and with both league and cuppers commitments there will be plenty of opportunity for some cricket. Please do get in touch if there are any questions or you want to sign up.



Basketball is literally the best sport ever, and Trinity is where its at. Most of our all-star players only started playing when they arrived at Trinity, so all abilities welcome. The Mens League runs during Michaelmas and Hilary term, and Mens and Womens Cuppers run in Trinity term. Trainings are generally on the weekend, with games on weekdays.

Last year, we merged with Wadham RFC for inter-college matches. We train on Wednesday afternoons and play matches on Saturday mornings, with regular social events, such as crew dates and bar swaps. The highlight of the year for many is the annual Old Boys match, accompanied with a black tie dinner and a rather less formal curry, which takes place in 0th week of Hilary term. Players of any ability or experience are welcome. Unfortunately, we don't currently have a women's team, however for any women keen to play rugby, we'll put you in contact with OUWRFC.




Trinity has a college hockey team! It’s a joint team with Queens & Wadham. We’ve got a match every Sunday at Iffley Astro court, during MT & HT. Usually 11 a-side but 7 when we lack numbers. We can possibly lend you a stick for a game, but best if you’ve got your own.

After a near-flawless performance in League 2 two years ago, Trinity Chess moved up to league 1 last year.

Trinity were at the top of League 1 until the season’s premature end, thanks to 3 from 4 boards being 2000+. Having lost only 1 match in 2 years in a competition featuring nearly 50 college teams, Trinity established itself as a strong chess-playing college.

Trinity's choir prides itself on being one of the friendliest in Oxford. We're a non-auditioning choir who perform to a high standard every week under the leadership of two student organ scholars. We rehearse every Thursday at 17:00 in college, and rehearse and perform every Sunday evening at 16:00 in the chapel. We enjoy a packed social life including weekly formal hall together as a choir, frequent pub trips, termly cheese and wine nights, and an annual overseas choir tour, which is the highlight of our year. In the past we've performed in the largest churches in Madrid, Krakow and Cologne to huge continental audiences. 

Beloff Speaking Competition 2018.jpg

Gryphon (Debating) Society

Trinity has its own debating and speaking society, The Gryphon, one of Trinity’s oldest established societies. The Masters of the Gryphon welcome members old and new to debate motions both relevant and irreverent, usually after Hall on Sundays. In addition to this, the Gryphon host's the annual Michael Beloff After-Dinner Speaking Competition, where members exercise their powers of rhetoric in order to win generous prizes. These talks bring together all members of college, not only those who study that particular subject, in a forum for lively debate on current research and issues.


Trinity Climbers

The Trinity Climbers is a newly formed student society for the growing community of climbers at the college. We host weekly sessions at Brookes climbing gym, plan trips to famous climbing spots in the UK, and support every climber of every level of experience to maximise their access to this incredible sport. 


Trinity Players (Drama)

If you're interested in college drama, do look out for the Freshers' Cuppers drama competition in Michaelmas (first) Term. In 2011, Trinity won overall and the cast were treated to High Table so it's worth getting involved.

We also hold the Trinity Lawns play every summer come rain or shine (leading to the occasional dash into Chapel to finish the last few scenes). Occasionally, the Trinity Players put on special events throughout the rest of the year too, like last Michaelmas Term 2016's production of Oscar Wilde's An Ideal Husband.

If you are interested in getting involved in drama outside of college, Trinity's OUDS rep is Eilidh Ross.



The Broadsheet is Trinity’s long-running termly college magazine, entirely run and contributed to by students. It expanded to print in 2022 and remained free for all JCR members. Covering all aspects of student life, from the football and boat club, to exploring Trinity’s dating scene through the traditional fresher-finalist blind date, The Broadsheet is here to journal everything Trinity.
