Undergraduate Study

Corpus Christi College buildings with blue sky and green lawn stripes


When I visited Corpus on the open day, I loved the welcoming atmosphere, beautiful buildings and small size of the College. The central location is perfect; close to lectures, shops and social activities. The College is small enough to really get to know everyone in your year and other years, and quickly feel at home.


Do you like the sound of a close-knit college community with over 650 years of academic excellence and a plethora of pelicans? If so, then the academically strong, supportive and inclusive environment at Corpus may be for you.

Corpus has two main sites: Old House in the heart of the historic city – close to lecture halls, libraries and student facilities – and Leckhampton, a spacious site with extensive gardens, tennis courts, sports grounds, and a gym. As an undergraduate you are guaranteed private accommodation for the duration of your course, possibly in one of our charming medieval courtyards.

The academic progress and the wellbeing of our students are our top priorities. We offer outstanding teaching by our Fellows and Directors of Studies and Supervisors, expert guidance from committed, experienced and well-trained personal Tutors, and an onsite College counsellor, nurse, Chaplain and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) team. We are committed to supporting students from a wide range of social and educational backgrounds, and our innovative Bridging Course ensures that all our students get the best start to their Cambridge career. Our students have access to two College libraries: the Taylor Library, dedicated to undergraduate, and the Parker Library, a treasure trove of world-famous, gorgeous illuminated manuscripts.

Lunch and dinner are served in our spacious dining halls and we have two student café/bars. Our chapel choir and unique studio theatre, the Corpus Playroom, provide opportunities for artistic expression. Our students run a number of clubs and societies, from the Fletcher Players dramatic society to quizzing, board games, and the Corpus Green Impact team.

You can find useful information about admissions and facilities on our website, where you can take a virtual 360 degree tour of the College and view our student accommodation. Better yet, visit us on one of our open days to tour the historic buildings and meet our students, staff and Fellows (and find out more about those pelicans).
