Churchill College students talking


Churchill is unique in its architecture, image, and outlook. We do Cambridge traditions differently, in the best way. Churchill feels like home.


Churchill College was created in the mid-twentieth century to confront, through technology, the challenges facing Britain and the world. Today this vision is more relevant than ever. In the arts and humanities, as well as in science and technology, our students 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.

Ours is a diverse community with a relaxed feel that achieves outstanding academic results. Students benefit from excellent and affordable accommodation, first-rate facilities (especially for sports, art, and music), and a great location. All 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 students tell us that Churchill is their home: they rate our accommodation highly (over 40 per cent en suite) and they love our food!

Churchill students are high-achieving but modest and kind: people who look out for one another, academically and socially. Our community seeks to address 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.

Our attitude is forward-looking, outward-reaching, and can-do. Our focus is on excellence and ensuring that all our students feel welcomed and supported as they aspire to it.
