Every student of the University must also be a member of one of the colleges. Degrees and other qualifications are administered and awarded by the University, but admission to a college is a requirement of enrolment in any course.
Information on the process of selecting a college is available on the University’s Graduate Admissions College Membership page, and the process for those applying for undergraduate degrees is described on the University’s Undergraduate Study Applying page. (More information is also available in the menu to the left.)
With excellent facilities, a special interest in catering to the needs of mature and graduate students, and a wonderful location close to the centre of the City, yet with the tranquility of the University’s cricket ground which it overlooks, Hughes Hall provides a unique context for mature students of the University.
Your choice of college is a decision about the kind of place you wish to live and socialise in during your time in Cambridge, as well as a choice based on the facilities available to you as a student member. These pages are intended to give you an in-depth look at Hughes Hall and to tell you about what makes the College special for all our members whether undergraduate or post-graduate.
