Undergraduate Study

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.


Since Churchill College admitted our first students in the 1960s, our mission has been to address the challenges facing Britain and the world. Today this vision is more relevant than ever. Across arts, sciences, humanities, and technologies, our students are the future’s thinkers, urgently responding – dynamically, logically, and creatively – to great international issues, like sustainability, social justice, climate change, and global health.


Our students tell us that Churchill is their home: they rate our accommodation highly and they love our food! Students benefit from excellent and affordable accommodation.

  • All undergraduates and many postgraduates (including families) live on our site.
  • Our main site is set in a 42 acre park a short walk from Cambridge city centre.
  • Over 40% of our accommodation is en suite.


Facilities at Churchill include:

  • rugby, football and cricket pitches
  • squash court
  • basketball/netball/tennis multipurpose court
  • onsite gym
  • music centre with recital spaces, recording studio and instruments
  • dance studio
  • Wolfson Hall theatre
  • 3 libraries
  • large dining hall and separate Buttery Bar

Location and student life

Our community is diverse with a relaxed feel and achieves outstanding academic results. 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.

Churchill students are high-achieving, modest, and kind. They look out for one another, academically and socially, reflecting the fact that widening participation and inclusion are in our DNA. Undergraduates live and study alongside our many postgraduate students, working under the guidance of our large Fellowship of teachers, lecturers, professors, and researchers.

Churchill College’s 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 realise their potential.
