Founded in 1979, Robinson is one of the most modern and ambitious Cambridge Colleges. Famed for its strong sense of community and relaxed atmosphere, there’s nowhere better to pursue your studies and interests.
Robinson is perfectly located for life in Cambridge – directly opposite the University Library and extremely close to the arts and sciences departments. A short walk or bike ride takes you directly into the city centre. The magnificent College gardens are much loved by students and academics alike.
At Robinson, the student body is truly diverse, coming from all backgrounds and from all over the world. They have the very best academic and pastoral support, allowing them to achieve at the highest levels.
There are students on most Cambridge courses, and a community of scholars with varied academic interests who are keen to help students with their work.
Robinson accommodation is outstanding and all undergraduates live within the College grounds throughout their original course. Around half is en suite and the remaining generally has one or two bathrooms between two or three individuals (no bedrooms are shared). Facilities are exceptional: no matter what your interests, there are opportunities to pursue them here. Our library is accessible 24 hours and boasts a comprehensive collection of books. Robinson also has some of the best College food in Cambridge, whether in the cafeteria-style Garden Restaurant or the optional twice-weekly formal dinners in the Hall.
A copy of the College prospectus and a video about College life can be found on our website. Our open events in March, April, July and September are good times to visit, but we also welcome individuals or school groups throughout the year. If you have any questions or wish to arrange a visit, please contact Francesca Amabile in the College Admissions Office.
