Make the college your ‘home from home’ and you’ll find a warm and welcoming place for study and friendship.
Because all our students are 21+, many choose to find their own place to live in Cambridge. However, if you’d prefer to live in our accommodation, we have around 400 student rooms available to rent – 285 on site and 115 in residential streets around the city.
When allocating rooms, we try to ensure that all students taking longer courses will be offered college accommodation in all three years. We also try to house first-year students on our central site. We offer a range of different room sizes, in-room facilities and rent levels.
Living on site
Most of our student rooms are in six of the buildings on our main site:
Most of our rooms are for students living on their own, but we have a few flats/studios for those who want to bring their partners with them.
About half our rooms have en-suite bathrooms (normally shower, toilet and hand basin). The others have access to shared bathrooms with a mix of showers and baths.
Living out of College
We also have around 115 rooms in nearby houses owned or managed by the College, or in Swirles Court, which is near the University’s West Cambridge and Madingley Rise sites. Swirles Court is around 3.5 miles (5.6km) from Hughes Hall – about 23 minutes by bus.
We are pleased to hear from our alumni and to help with rooms in college when they come back to visit us.
