Homerton is one of the newer Cambridge Colleges, yet we have more than 250 years of history behind us. We are at the centre of everything that is new at the University of Cambridge, located in inspirational surroundings, with first-class facilities and an atmosphere quite unlike any of the other Colleges.
We are one of the most inclusive and diverse Cambridge Colleges, so if you study here, you will meet students and staff from all over the world, from many different backgrounds. What unites our community is a passion to succeed and make a positive impact on the world.
If you want to get a feel of what day-to-day life is like at Homerton, the best way is to pay us a visit or take part in one of our virtual open days.

Latest from The Homersphere
“Above all, I feel empowered by the opportunity that Changemakers have given me to deeply connect and exchange ideas with like-minded people of all ages and backgrounds - and a powerful reminder that it is up to our generation, each and every one of us, to make this world a better place to live in.”
Changemakers has introduced me to a community of wonderful and inspiring people. Each Changemaker event I have attended has left me feeling energised and excited to tackle the big challenges our world is facing today. Having the right values, tools, attitude and people on my side has emboldened me to champion radical positive change.
"The world has come undone and I would like to change it every day. Change does not come at once, it is a wave, building before it breaks. I support Changemakers because I am part of that wave committed to a present moment rooted in satisfaction for all"
"Homerton Changemakers is a brilliant and necessary invitation for us to raise our game as humans. To explore how to draw new maps for a world with a future.”
Our Directors of Studies, Tutors, Student Union and Support Staff provide unparalleled support during your time here and long after you graduate. You are a Homertonian for life.
