What is a College?

Your chosen College will be your home throughout your studies, providing you with support during your time at Cambridge.

Cambridge has 31 different Colleges. Each one is autonomous and governed as an independent institution, though they are all an essential part of the University of Cambridge. Your chosen College will be your home throughout your studies, providing you with support during your time at Cambridge. Your Directors of Studies, Tutors and the Student Union — as well as your fellow students — will be your family for the duration of your studies. Even after you have left, you will always be welcomed back. For a comprehensive summary of the role of Colleges and their place in the wider University of Cambridge community, click here.
