Hughes Hall is a College of the University of Cambridge with a vibrant, international and friendly academic atmosphere. A distinctive aspect of College life at Hughes is an egalitarian culture where interaction and engagement between the senior membership and students is open and encouraged.

We accept graduate students and mature undergraduates in all areas of study and research, and offer scholarships and bursaries targeted at new and continuing students.

Historically, the College has had a unique role in enhancing and supporting graduate study, and we welcome excellent students working in traditional and innovative fields throughout the University.

While there are still restrictions in place to stop the spread of COVID-19, Hughes Hall remains open for students, senior members and staff of the College. However, visitors to the main College site will only be permitted for academic reasons.

Anthony Freeling, President.
