Undergraduate Study



No other College comes close to Churchill’s spacious, open fields, large courtyards and level of greenery. You’ve always got somewhere quiet, uncrowded and unpretentious to come back to with Churchill.


Churchill encompasses outstanding academic results, a diverse community with a relaxed feel, excellent and affordable on-site accommodation, first-rate facilities (especially for sports and music) and a great location.

In the mid-twentieth century, Churchill was created to confront through technology the challenges facing Britain and the world. Today this vision is more relevant than ever. Students in the arts and humanities as well as in science and technology will become the researchers and policy-makers of the future, urgently responding – dynamically, logically and creatively – to great international questions such as social justice, climate change and global health. 

In Churchill’s DNA are merit, widening participation and a forward-looking, outward-reaching, can-do attitude. We are different in lots of positive ways. Setting aside our (frankly comical) number of Nobel Prize-Winners and Andy Warhol Marilyns, our students are high-achieving but modest and kind: people who look out for one another, academically and socially. Our community addresses underrepresentation: it is more UK state-educated, more female, more international and more ethnically diverse than many people imagine. Undergraduates live and study alongside our many postgraduate students, working under the guidance of our large Fellowship of lecturers, professors and researchers. After graduation, they go on to further study or careers of huge and real achievement.

All Churchill’s undergraduates live on our main site, set in a large park a short walk from Cambridge city centre. We’re up the road from the University Library and the Sidgwick Site (arts and humanities), and effectively next door to the West Cambridge Site where many science courses are based. Our accommodation (over 40 per cent en suite) is highly rated by our students. They love our food!

Our students tell us that Churchill is their home. While working really hard, they – in their own words – put the CHILL in Churchill.
