Trinity Student Information

  • As Capital University and Trinity Lutheran Seminary continue integrating operations, our student experience remains at the center of our decision-making. We’ve established the Student Experience Integration Team to support all students and ensure the best possible learning and living experience throughout this transition, and into the future. The team includes members of all the functional areas of both institutions, with particular focus on student-facing offices. It meets on a weekly basis.

    As the team establishes new, integrated processes to serve all students, we will share the information on this page by providing answers to frequently asked questions. As always, if you have a question that’s not addressed here, please send it to, and the team’s co-chairs, Susan Kannenwischer, assistant vice president for enrollment services (Capital); Jennie Smith, dean of students (Capital); and Kayla Aspeslagh, national recruiter (Trinity), will respond directly.

    • Student Frequently Asked Questions about Reunion

      Q. Will I be able to access Capital’s Wi-Fi and other IT systems and services?
      A. Information Technology is working to install Capital’s new wireless and wired internet service. Work is progressing and is expected to be complete by late August, in time for the start of fall semester. This will allow seamless access to Capital systems and internet throughout both campuses.

      Q. Why do I need a Capital ID?
      A. Capital ID cards are a primary source of identification and access to resources. With your Capital ID card, you’ll be able to access Capital buildings, like The Mezz Fitness Center and The Capital Center and more, along with resources like Blackmore Library collections, OhioLink, and CapBucks, which are flexible spending dollars you can use to food at One Main Café, Capital Court and a host of businesses along Main Street. Your Capital ID also will get you access to a host of arts, entertainment and cultural events at Capital for free or at a significantly reduced price. Faculty and staff will be notified when their Capital accounts have been created so they can come to the Capital IT helpdesk, located on the first floor of the Blackmore Library, to get their card. Students will receive an email with directions for obtaining a Capital ID. Students will have the opportunity to submit information for their IDs prior to fall semester or at orientation on August 25.

      Q. Trinity is a safe campus. Why is door access being restricted?
      A. Trinity and Capital are blessed to enjoy safe campuses. But crime happens even on the safest campuses. Controlling access to buildings and installing security cameras deters crime and enhances safety. Capital recently received a grant to install security cameras and automated door access controls in Trinity’s facilities and dorms. Camera placement will be managed in accordance with Capital’s Video Surveillance Policy. This access will be functional by August 1 and will allow secured access to the buildings and monitoring by Capital’s Department of Public Safety.

      Q. How do I get my parking pass?
      A. All Trinity students and employees will need to obtain parking hang tags, which will permit access to parking in Capital and Trinity parking lots, consistent with the university’s parking regulations. View a campus map with parking lot information here (PDF). Students will be issued student parking permits dependent upon their status as resident or commuter. Trinity faculty and staff will be issued parking permits for the northeast section of the Trinity lot, which will be reserved through December 31 for Trinity faculty and staff parking only. The parking fee will be waived for the Trinity community during the 2017-18 academic year. To obtain a parking permit, fill out this form and turn it in to Capital’s Public Safety Department, located in the house at the corner of Mound Street and College Avenue. Parking permits can be obtained beginning on July 17 and before August 21.

      Q. What are some important dates I should keep in mind?
      Key dates to keep in mind are:

      • July 6-August 11: TLS Summer Greek 
      • July 12: Capital fall bills will be sent 
      • July 24-29: TLS Summer D. Min. intensives
