Accommodation

Accommodation

The College has about 400 rooms available to students to rent, 285 rooms are in buildings making up the central college site surrounding the cricket field, and a further 115 are in houses owned or managed by the College and located in the residential streets in the local area, or in student accommodation facilities at Swirles Court adjacent to the University’s West Cambridge and Madingley Rise sites (locations for departments including Chemical Engineering, Computer Science, Materials Science, Physics, and the University Sports Centre).

Most rooms are for single occupancy, though the College has a few flats/twins available for couples. About half the student rooms have en-suite bathrooms (normally shower, toilet, hand basin) and other rooms have access to shared bathrooms (a mix of showers and baths etc.).

It is College policy to give priority for college accommodation to students taking courses of three years duration or longer, and to give priority to first-year students for accommodation on the central College site.

The College’s Accommodation Guide provides more information about College buildings and rooms.

There is further practical information about College accommodation in the accommodation section of the Student Centre pages.
