Undergraduate Study

Pembroke is the warmest community of people which I'm very proud to be a part of. The College has given me many opportunities which I am so, so grateful for.


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.

Our food has a great reputation across the University, with our dining hall offering lots of choice and flexibility. We also have a café which serves food and drink throughout the day and becomes the College bar in the evening.

Besides the College bar, we have 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, however seriously (or otherwise!) they want to take them. 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.

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 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. If you think we sound like a College that would suit you, then please do get in touch to find out more!
