Churchill’s motto is ‘Forward’. We look to the future, not the past. Our students achieve superlative exam results amidst some of Cambridge’s best accommodation and facilities, sited on the largest College campus.
Our founder, Winston Churchill, envisaged a sciences-focused community, but our large size means that arts students are as numerous here as in many other Colleges. Today we are distinguished not just by our academic reputation but also by our diversity. Encouraging social mobility and internationalism is integral to our mission of excellence and of reaching out to the wider world.
We can provide on-site accommodation to all undergraduates for the full duration of their course. Quality is exceptional: rooms are modern, spacious and light, with free wireless internet. Many are en suite. Rents are set bearing in mind the objective of affordability. Facilities for disabled people are excellent.
The College’s leafy site is close to the West Cambridge science campus and within easy reach of the University Library and arts/ humanities faculties. We are near enough to central Cambridge to enjoy a city location, but far enough out to enjoy the benefits of space, quiet and greenery. Facilities include an all-day bar/coffee shop; on-site sports pitches, courts and a gym; a 300-seat theatre/cinema; music rehearsal, performance and recording facilities; and an art studio. All this constitutes a vibrant hub of activity.
Clubs and societies, coupled with a calendar of social events, provide many opportunities to meet people and make lasting friendships.
When looking at undergraduate admissions we strongly prioritise academic results while actively encouraging applicants from a wide range of backgrounds. If you are among the brightest, hardest-working and highest-achieving students in your school or college, you are likely to be a serious applicant. We urge you to consider applying.
