Centrally located in Cambridge, Pembroke is a stone’s throw from many departments. Our supportive, diverse community, with its strong reputation for academic excellence, is one in which the most able students from all backgrounds thrive.
At the heart of a bustling city, the College is an oasis, with spacious gardens and a large site. Pembroke students live on the main site or in nearby College-owned houses throughout their undergraduate studies, and accommodation ranges from the old to the new. Our food is renowned for its quality, with lots of choice and flexibility. Students can also catch up with friends or work at Café Pembroke, which serves hot and cold food and drinks throughout the day.
We have a library, computer room, bar, gym, music practice rooms and more on site, and sports fields a short cycle ride away. There are numerous opportunities for students to explore their wider interests, however seriously (or otherwise!) they want to take them. Pembroke students flourish, and we do everything we can to offer the support they deserve.
Members of Pembroke are united by a deep interest in their subject, their intellectual curiosity and their commitment to fulfilling their academic potential, but at the same time they respect one another’s right to be different within the College’s inclusive and friendly ethos. Tutors, Directors of Studies and academic supervisors are dedicated to supporting and inspiring students to develop their existing talents so that they achieve highly in readiness for their careers and lives beyond university.
In assessing applications, we place a great deal of emphasis on academic achievement, and we encourage the brightest and most interested students, whatever your background, to consider us. We particularly encourage those students whose school or college has little experience of Cambridge to think about applying to us.
