Opened in 1972, the Hall was constructed by funds raised by the Society of Friends of the University, chaired by Sir Hugh O.B. Wodding, Former Chancellor of the University of the West Indies . The residence was given the name "Trinity Hall" in recognition of the large number of ordinary citizens of Trinidad and Tobago (including numerous school children) who responded to the fund raising appeal. The Hall can accommodate 142 women.
