Undergraduate Study



Corpus, being one of the smaller Colleges, gives students from many different backgrounds the chance to come together into a very welcoming community. Its strengths include an ideal location, stunning architecture, private sports and leisure facilities and lots of interesting history.


Founded by the townspeople in 1352, Corpus’ central location and beautiful settings are hard to beat. Underpinned by its close-knit and friendly community, Corpus provides a supportive and inclusive environment in which all students can flourish.

The main site of Corpus is situated in the centre of Cambridge; close to lecture halls, libraries and student facilities. At Corpus the ancient and modern sit side by side. Our Old Court is possibly the oldest surviving court in Cambridge, and has housed students for more than 650 years. In the adjacent Kwee Court you find our modern 24-hour student library, which has extensive holdings and excellent study facilities, as well as our contemporary student café/bar. Our stunning dining hall is located in New Court, as is our Parker Library, which contains a famous collection of ancient manuscripts.

As a Corpus undergraduate, you’re guaranteed accommodation for the duration of your course in single-occupancy rooms, in or close to the main College site. Our graduate site at Leckhampton is a 15-minute walk away and is regularly used by our undergraduates. Here you find large playing fields, tennis courts, a gym, pool and extensive gardens.

Our students come from a wide range of social and educational backgrounds and we value each student’s academic potential while providing the resources to flourish in Cambridge – outstanding teaching by our Fellows and academics, fantastic student facilities and first-rate pastoral support. Students combine their academic studies with our lively social and cultural life. We have a flourishing music scene, many subject societies, and a unique stand-alone studio theatre, the Corpus Playroom.

You can find useful information about admissions and facilities on our website. Better yet, visit us on one of our open days to tour the historic buildings and meet our students and Fellows.
