Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


En suite accommodation at Newnham College for Terms I, II and III is now full. Standard rooms are available.

Set around large secluded gardens, this graceful College is just across the road from your lecture rooms, yet still within easy walking distance of the historic city centre. Meals are served buffet-style and taken in the airy dining hall overlooking the colourful gardens.

Newnham College has produced many leading women writers, scientists and intellectuals. Founded in 1871, Newnham received a College charter in 1917 and in 1948 its women finally received University degrees. The graceful Queen Anne style buildings are set around the extensive lawns and flower beds of the beautiful gardens. You can choose a shared-facility single room located in Sidgwick. Please note our en suite rooms are now full.

Newnham is popular with those wanting the choice that a served buffet-style dinner provides combined with a traditionally-served Closing Dinner on the final night of each two-week term.

Please note: Standard rooms will be located in Sidgwick (not in Old Hall as previously advertised). Although a single-sex College during the academic year, Newnham is open to both male and female students during the summer.

Facilities include: standard rooms; wifi access in rooms; computer room; bed linen and towels; laundry room.
