Undergraduate Study



I couldn’t wish for a better second home. Everyone here looks after you and your wellbeing, not just your academic standards. It feels great to know that there’s always someone around to help me out!


At the heart of Cambridge, Pembroke is a stone’s throw from many departments and everything that the city has to offer. Here you’ll find a warm and diverse community, with a friendly atmosphere that comes from those who work, study and teach here. We welcome students from all backgrounds, and particularly encourage those from backgrounds or schools who might not usually consider Cambridge to think about applying to us.

Pembroke is an oasis, with spacious gardens and a large site. Our students live on the main site or in nearby College-owned houses throughout their undergraduate studies, and accommodation ranges from the old to the new. Our food is renowned for its quality, with lots of choice and flexibility. Students can also catch up with friends or work at Café Pembroke, which serves hot and cold food and drinks throughout the day.

We have a library, computer room, bar, gym, music practice rooms and more on site, and sports fields a short cycle ride away. There are numerous opportunities for students to explore their wider interests, however seriously (or otherwise!) they want to take them. Pembroke students flourish, and we do everything we can to offer the support they deserve.

Members of Pembroke are united by a deep interest in their subject, their intellectual curiosity and their commitment to fulfilling their academic potential. This contributes to the College’s reputation for academic excellence. We also respect one another’s right to be different - our College is inclusive and friendly . All of our academic staff are dedicated to supporting and inspiring students to develop their existing talents so that they achieve highly in readiness for their careers and lives beyond university.

In assessing applications, we place a great deal of emphasis on academic achievement, and we encourage the brightest and most interested students, whatever your background, to consider us.
