Bed & Breakfast
Murray Edwards College provides bed and breakfast in comfortable en suite and ‘standard’ shared-bathroom bedrooms. The rooms are used by students during term time, so you are getting an experience of University life. Our campus is peaceful yet inspiring, where guests are encouraged to relax and ‘walk on the grass’ and relax in our informal but pretty gardens.
The New Hall Art Collection is housed at the College and is the largest collection of art by women in Europe (second largest in the world). The collection is free to self-tour and includes works by Barbara Hepworth, Elizabeth Frink, Paula Rego, Maggi Hambling and Judy Chicago.
Our breakfast will help your day get off to a great start. Most often served in the spectacular Dome Dining Hall, we offer full English breakfast (with options for those with dietary requirements), plus continental options, yoghurts, fruit and hot and cold beverages.
Bedrooms include everything you need for a restful and secure base from which to explore the city of Cambridge and University Colleges.
En suite bedrooms come with a private bathroom within the bedroom.
Our high quality en suite bedrooms are available in Buckingham House, Pearl House, The Kaetsu Centre & Canning and Eliza House and are ideal for weekend break visitors and business travellers.
Many of our en suites overlook our gardens and all feature comfortable beds, toiletries, towels and en suite shower rooms.
Standard bedrooms have shared bathroom facilities. Toilets and shower rooms are located on each corridor and there are 2-3 bedrooms per toilet/shower.
Perfect for travelling students and those on a more conservative budget, our standard bedrooms are situated in beautiful Orchard Court and many have views of our lovely gardens.
The majority have been recently refurbished and all come with toiletries, in-room refreshments, towels and a sink.
