Undergraduate Study


Homerton has been in Cambridge for well over 100 years and yet is the newest College of the University, one of the largest and one of the most diverse.

At Homerton, we blend a few long-established traditions with a modern forward-thinking approach. Each new generation of students helps to build our academic community, enhancing what’s already one of the most vibrant, open and inclusive places for living and learning in the University.

Homerton is a green oasis on the south side of the city, with spacious grounds through which all College members can roam (even walking on the grass!). Our buildings are a mixture of old and new, with a fine Victorian building at the College’s heart. Our study bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and all the necessary links that technology allows. All undergraduates can be accommodated on site throughout their studies.

Living in College is overwhelmingly popular, not just for the comfortable rooms but for the full social and intellectual life that Homerton offers. We have the usual facilities: a large modern and well-stocked library, a gym, a theatre, music rooms, and, more unusually, a dance studio and sports grounds on-site. Our students take full advantage of these to play hard and work hard.

Homerton has always been a welcoming place; somewhere to become what you want to be. Whatever your background and interests there'll be others who share them. Our students participate fully in the life of the College, taking part in its decision-making through the Students’ Union and enriching the local and wider society with their multitude of interests, skills and enthusiasms. We’re an evolving community, committed to remaining a place where doors are open, where nobody’s too grand to talk to you, and where each student can develop their full potential in supportive and beautiful surroundings.
