Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


Overlooking the River Cam, Queens’ boasts the famous Mathematical Bridge and some of the most iconic views in Cambridge. The College offers a magnificent dining hall, historic courtyards, quiet gardens and modern rooms: the best of both worlds.

Queens’ College is conveniently located between the heart of the city and the teaching rooms. The College was founded in 1448 by Margaret of Anjou (wife of Henry VI) and refounded in 1465 by Elizabeth Woodville, wife of Edward IV. The Old Hall, Old Kitchens, Munro and Erasmus Rooms date from this time. The sundial in Old Court dates from 1642, and the precursor to today’s Mathematical Bridge was constructed in 1749-50.

Cripps Court (where the single en suites are situated) was built in 1974 and recently refurbished. The twin en suite rooms are in the nearby Fisher Building.

Queens' provides served buffet-style dinners (generally taken in the Munro Room or Cripps Dining Hall) and a traditionally-served Closing Dinner (in the stunning Old Hall on the final night of each two-week term). Breakfast is self-service in Cripps Dining Hall.
