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.


As an undergraduate you are guaranteed private accommodation for the duration of your course, possibly in one of our charming medieval courtyards. 


Our students have access to 2 College libraries:

  • the Taylor library, dedicated to undergraduates
  • 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.

We have a chapel choir and a unique studio theatre, the Corpus Playroom. Both 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.

Location and student life

Corpus has 2 main sites:

  • Old House in the heart of the historic city, close to lecture halls, libraries and student facilities
  • Leckhampton, a spacious site with extensive gardens, tennis courts, sports grounds, and a gym

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
  • 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.

Our innovative Bridging Course ensures that all our students get the best start to their Cambridge career.
