Selwyn College provides an environment in which students can excel academically and achieve their full potential while at the same time enjoying student life to the full.
The Fellows of Selwyn College are committed teachers who take a keen interest in the academic progress of their students and provide an exceptionally supportive environment. The College is noted for its high standards and the lively participation of its students in University life.
The College is only a few minutes’ walk from the city centre and comprises a single spacious site with beautiful gardens. We have a range of accommodation, 70 per cent of which is en suite, and can house all of our undergraduates on-site for the three or four years of their course. Having everyone living together makes for a strong sense of community and a vibrant social life.
Selwyn is adjacent to the Sidgwick Site, which houses most of the arts faculties, and is also close to the West Cambridge Site where several of the large science departments are located. None of the other University departments are more than a few minutes away.
Student life in Selwyn is busy and varied. Our students are enthusiastic participants in many College and University clubs and societies, and Selwyn enjoys a strong reputation in both drama and music, as well as having an excellent Chapel choir. Many students enjoy participating in College sport, and the teams have enjoyed notable success. Selwyn seeks to admit the very best students, regardless of background, on the basis of academic excellence and potential to thrive on our demanding courses. We invite you to visit our website or contact us to find out more; we would also be pleased to see you in person at an open day, a school visit or by appointment.
