Undergraduate Study

 

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. 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, from the allotment society to the amateur dramatics society, and some of the best facilities for music in the University.

The College guarantees students accommodation for all years of their undergraduate degree. 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 newly 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 state-of-the-art library, well-equipped computer rooms, and internet connections across all accommodation. Our self-service cafeteria is popular and every corridor has a communal kitchen, offering students plenty of flexibility for meals.

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.

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