Cambridge’s collegiate structure means that 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. Of the 31 colleges, six are graduate colleges, taking just over one third of all graduate students in 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 a 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.
