Living in Cambridge
While studying at the University of Cambridge Summer Schools you will have the opportunity to live in one of the historic Colleges and dine in the traditional halls. Accommodation is in College rooms normally occupied by Cambridge undergraduates. Rooms are basic with a single bed and washbasin; some Colleges provide en suite facilities for an additional cost.
Your accommodation fee pays for a single College room, breakfast and evening meals, unless otherwise stated. Some accommodation is available on a room-only basis.
Cambridge is an ancient city, with its origins going back to Roman times. Every age has left its mark on this market town, from Medieval to Georgian to modern-day buildings.
Cambridge is a vibrant university city and benefits from a number of shops, restaurants, music venues, pubs, clubs and coffee houses. The city also retains great beauty and charm. During the summer you will get to know the quiet back streets, College courtyards, and treasures, such as the Wren Library
and Kettle’s Yard, that tourists to the city often only glimpse.
All Summer School students are supported by our network of Resident Assistants. These are University of Cambridge students who live alongside you in College during the summer and assist you with any queries you may have during your stay. They are your first point of contact in case of any difficulties, and are there to make sure that your summer is enjoyable and hassle-free.
