Girton is a home from home, where you can experience all that’s best about being at Cambridge. The College has some of the best on-site sporting and leisure facilities in the University, including football, rugby and cricket pitches; squash and basketball courts; a new gym and, uniquely, an indoor heated swimming pool.
There is a wide range of student-run clubs and societies, from the allotment society to the amateur dramatics society, and some of the best facilities for music in the University.
The College guarantees accommodation for undergraduates for three years, and fourth-years are offered rooms when available. The majority of our undergraduates, including all first years, are housed on the historic main College site in a variety of accommodation – ranging from Victorian rooms in the original building, to modern en suite rooms in Ash Court. We have a popular self-service cafeteria and every corridor has a communal kitchen, offering students plenty of flexibility for meals.
We have a state-of-the-art library, well-equipped computer rooms, and internet connections across all accommodation. We maintain roughly equal numbers of men and women amongst our Fellowship and student body, and the relationship between Fellows, students and staff is friendly, lively and supportive.
