From day one, everyone I’ve met at King’s has been so nice and friendly! There’s a great sense of community within the College and you can always find your own crowd and friends, as people here really welcome diversity and accept you for who you are.

King’s has a long history of intellectual, artistic and social innovation. We were among the first of the historically male Colleges to admit women, and we have played a leading role in attracting ethnic minorities and state-educated students to Cambridge. King’s is a vibrant, diverse and tolerant community which actively encourages applications from all UK schools and colleges, continental Europe and overseas.

The College has a high ratio of teaching Fellows to undergraduates, and relations between members of the College are traditionally informal. Our academic standards are high and we take intellectual life seriously. King’s makes every effort to support students in their academic work and University lives, providing an excellent library, welcoming work spaces, and a committed tutorial team.

King’s stands in the centre of Cambridge, with its splendid grounds and buildings stretching to the River Cam and beyond. There’s a wide choice of accommodation, both en suite and with shared facilities. Meals are offered in the grand College Hall but you can always eat in the adjoining bar if you prefer something less formal. The bar – used for meetings, musical performances and open mic nights – is the heart of the College social life and the adjoining coffee shop provides a convenient study space. We offer sports facilities, punts and kayaks, music practice rooms, a dark room, clubs and societies, student-run club nights and an Art Centre, which runs classes for all members. Our students are represented on College committees and fully engaged in the College’s rich intellectual and social life.

King’s is justly renowned for its music and Chapel. In addition to our celebrated male-voice choir, there’s King’s Voices (a mixed choir), a student orchestra and musical society. At King’s, it’s your academic potential that matters most and all students, regardless of background, can prosper here.
