Undergraduate Study



From the moment you walk in it feels open and friendly. You just feel really comfortable here. I mean, this is home.


Churchill’s motto is ‘Forward’. We look to the future, not the past. Regularly ranked among the top Cambridge colleges in terms of examination results, and with many Nobel Prize winners to our name, we have an exceptional academic reputation. Our community is also renowned for its openness and diversity: people come here from every background, and from all over the UK and the world.

With one of the largest College campuses in Cambridge, we are able to accommodate all of our undergraduates on site throughout their degree. Our student rooms are large, comfortable and warm – more than 40 per cent are en suite, and all have free wi-fi. Rents range to facilitate student choice and are set bearing in mind our key objective of affordability. Provision for students with disabilities is excellent.

Churchill’s student facilities are fantastic. They include a comprehensive 24/7 library, a dining hall, an all-day coffee shop/bar, a 300-seat theatre/cinema, a music recital room, an art studio, on-site sports pitches, courts, and gym, and a boathouse on the river. Churchill is located adjacent to Cambridge city centre and the University’s thriving West Cambridge Site.

Churchill’s founders placed great emphasis on the study of science and technology, but they also recognised the advantages of a diverse academic community. Whilst we retain a focus on science subjects, students in the arts and humanities are as numerous here as they are in many other Cambridge colleges.

When looking at undergraduate admissions we strongly prioritise academic results while actively encouraging applicants from a wide range of backgrounds. If you are among the brightest, hardest-working, and highest-achieving students in your school or college, you are likely to be a serious applicant. We urge you to consider joining us.
