Situated across two sites, Corpus features medieval buildings in the heart of Cambridge as well as expansive facilities at nearby Leckhampton. Our dynamic student community fosters academic excellence and a rich and inclusive social life.
It’s hard to beat the location and setting of Corpus. Founded in 1352, our main site is in the centre of town, close to lecture halls, libraries and student facilities. At Corpus, the ancient and modern sit side by side. Our Old Court is possibly the oldest surviving court in Cambridge and has housed students for more than 650 years. However, the adjacent court is home to the Taylor Library, a modern 24 hour library with wi-fi access and extensive holdings. The splendid New Court houses the Parker Library, a famous collection of ancient manuscripts that draws scholars and students from around the world.
As a Corpus undergraduate, you’re guaranteed accommodation for the duration of your course in single-occupancy rooms, in or close to the main College site. Our graduate site at Leckhampton is a 10-minute walk away and is regularly used by our undergraduates. Here you find large playing fields, tennis courts, a gym, pool and extensive gardens.
Our students come from a wide range of social and educational backgrounds and we value each student’s academic potential while providing the resources to flourish in Cambridge – outstanding teaching by our Fellows and academics, fantastic student facilities and first-rate pastoral support. Students combine their academic studies with our lively social and cultural life. We have a flourishing music scene, many subject societies, and a unique stand-alone studio theatre, the Corpus Playroom.
You can find useful information about admissions and facilities on our website. Better yet, visit us on one of our open days to tour the historic buildings and meet our students and Fellows.
