Undergraduate Study

Were I to choose again, I wouldn’t apply anywhere else. There’s a togetherness like at no other College. Always a friendly face and staff are approachable. One of the unrecognised gems of Cambridge Colleges.


Set in beautiful grounds of more than 50 acres just outside the city centre, Girton College’s setting matches its open and informal atmosphere.

Founded on values of equality and diversity, Girton offers every student superb facilities in which to live and learn. Although we are one of the larger Cambridge Colleges, we offer a friendly community where no-one is anonymous. Whatever your subject, you receive top-class tuition, excellent support and an opportunity to exceed your expectations.

There is a wide range of student-run clubs and societies – subject, sporting and social – and some of the best facilities for music in the University.

The College guarantees its students accommodation for three years of their studies. The majority of our undergraduates, including all first years, are housed on the historic main College site in a variety of accommodation – ranging from Victorian rooms in the original building, to modern en suite rooms in Ash Court. An option from the second year is an en suite room in the recently built Swirles Court (located between the College and city centre).

At Girton, you can experience all that’s great about being at Cambridge. The College has excellent on-site sporting and leisure facilities, including football, rugby and cricket pitches; squash and basketball courts; a new gym and, uniquely, an indoor heated swimming pool. We have a modern library, well-equipped computer rooms, and internet connections across all accommodation. We offer students plenty of flexibility for meals: you can use our very popular self-service cafeteria and all-day café or, if you want to cook for yourself, every corridor has a communal kitchen.

We maintain roughly equal numbers of men and women amongst our Fellowship and student body, and the relationship between Fellows, students and staff is friendly, lively and supportive.
