You will be staying in one of the 31 colleges of the University. The college provides a peaceful, secure campus with excellent modern teaching and lecture facilities, set in pretty informal gardens, just 10 minutes’ walk from Cambridge’s famous museums, colleges and shops. Participants will have ensuite single bedrooms used by college students in term time. En-suite twin bedrooms are also available for siblings or friends who wish to share. The rooms are located close together in one accommodation house, which has 3* campus accreditation from Visit England.
The rooms are clean and comfortable with high speed internet access. Bedding and towels will be changed on a weekly basis. Boys and girls will be accommodated separately. It is strictly forbidden for boys to go into girls’ rooms or vice versa.
The meals are fresh, locally sourced English food of a high quality. For breakfast there is a choice of full cooked English breakfast, fruit, yoghurt, cereals, pastries and croissants. For dinner you can choose daily from a large selection of hot food, including vegetarian options, a soup of the day and a salad bar. The catering team is experienced in the preparation of meals for those with specific dietary requirements, including halal.
For lunch, you can explore restaurants, cafes, and sandwich shops in Cambridge or enjoy a riverside picnic. Lunch is not included in the course fees.
Tap water is safe for drinking, so bring along a water bottle to refill during the day and for excursions.
On one evening during the programme, participants will have the privilege of being served a formal dinner, just like real Cambridge students.
For this, we ask you to dress up in your finest clothes and smart shoes!
