Undergraduate Study

Pembroke College Cambridge


The best thing about Pembroke? Definitely the people! Whether it’s your DoS offering you a chat to catch up, the kitchen staff joking around with you, or just the warm smile of a porter passing by – they are what makes Pembroke a second home!


At Pembroke, we pride ourselves on the warmth, diversity and inclusivity of our community. We encourage applications from students from all backgrounds; you’ll find a friendly, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, and a community of students united by a deep interest in their subject. 


Pembroke students live on the main site or in nearby College-owned houses throughout their undergraduate studies.

All first years are housed on our main College site, making it really easy to make new friends when you first arrive.

Accommodation ranges in age, size, and price, ensuring that there is plenty of choice.

Pembroke has recently built some brand new accommodation which includes en suites, and will be ready for the students starting with us in October 2024.


One of the things we’re best known for is our food, which has a great reputation across the University. Our dining hall offers lots of choice and flexibility, with options for a wide range of dietary requirements, and we ensure our students have a say in what we serve. We also have a café which serves food and drink throughout the day and becomes the College bar in the evening. 

Our facilities include: 

  • a library 
  • a computer room 
  • a gym 
  • music practice rooms 
  • sports fields  
  • multi-faith prayer room
  • professional standard climbing wall
  • 200+ seat auditorium
  • exhibition space

Location and student life

Located at the heart of Cambridge, we are also brilliantly placed for many University departments and everything that the city has to offer.

Most of our beautiful buildings are from centuries past, but our community is resoundingly 21st-century! We have lots of clubs and societies, affording our students many opportunities to explore their wider interests.

We also have a whole range of student support services on hand, such as our two College Nurses, one of whom is dedicated to mental health and wellbeing, and tutorial team, to ensure that our students are able to thrive whilst they are with us.

We respect one another’s right to be different, and do all that we can to give Pembroke students the support they deserve.

Come and visit Pembroke to experience our warm welcome and find out about the support we can offer to help you settle in at Cambridge. Please get in touch to find out more!
