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 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 and relaxed atmosphere that comes from those who study, work 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.

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 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.

Pembroke students live on the main site or in nearby College-owned houses throughout their undergraduate studies, and accommodation ranges in age, size and price – but is all of a high standard. Whilst we don’t have many en-suites, our students all have individual bedrooms, and most rooms have their own sink. All first years are housed on our main College site, making it really easy to make new friends when you first arrive.

Our facilities include a library, computer room, gym, music practice rooms, sports fields and more, as well as loads of clubs and societies. Our students therefore have lots of opportunities to explore their wider interests. We also have a whole range of student support services on hand, such as our College Nurse and tutorial team, to ensure that our students are able to thrive whilst they are with us. Our students are united by a deep interest in their subject, which contributes to our reputation for academic excellence. We also respect one another’s right to be different, and do all that we can to give Pembroke students the support they deserve. Please get in touch to find out more!
