Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


Newnham College facilities include:

Standard single rooms; En suite single and double rooms; Wifi access in rooms; bed linen and towels; laundry room

Set around large secluded gardens, this graceful College is just across the road from the main teaching site, and a short walk from the historic city centre.  

Newnham College has produced many leading women writers, scientists and intellectuals. Founded in 1871, it 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. Newnham is currently one of three women’s Colleges in Cambridge, but is open to both male and female students during the summer.

You can choose a standard single room with shared bathroom facilities, or a modern en suite single or double room. Newnham College provides served buffet-style dinners, and a traditionally-served Formal Friday. Meals are taken in the Buttery or main College Dining Hall overlooking the gardens.
