Bedrooms are used by students during the term, so you are getting a real student experience!  There are some additional comforts for guests including in-room refreshments, toiletries, towels and bed linen.  All rooms have free WiFi Internet access.

Our campus is peaceful yet inspiring, where guests are encouraged to relax and ‘walk on the grass’ and relax in our informal, pretty gardens.

The College is home to the Women’s Art Collection, which was recently featured in Vogue Magazine, as one of the best places to visit in Cambridge. The collection is the second largest of it’s kind in the world and free to self-tour.
