Undergraduate Study



Peterhouse is a close-knit College. It's a space in which all students feel a sense of belonging, which makes settling in easy. The academic environment is just as supportive, allowing everyone to seek help when they need it.


Just 5 minutes’ walk from the city centre, Peterhouse is an exciting and friendly place to live. It’s perfectly situated for student life – close to the arts, engineering and science faculties, but just off the tourist trail.  


We provide a range of excellent accommodation (including en suite rooms) in central Cambridge (on or adjacent to the main site) for all undergraduates for the duration of their course.


We offer great food eaten in the oldest Hall in Cambridge, and there’s the option of a candlelit dinner every night during term. 

Peterhouse has excellent facilities for study, sport, music and social events. These include: 

  • a spacious and well-stocked library 
  • a theatre 
  • music practice rooms 
  • bar 
  • computer room 
  • gym
  • boathouse and sports grounds 

The beautiful and tranquil Deer Park provides a large space for students to relax and meet friends while enjoying a pause in their busy schedules.  

Location and student life

The College is a supportive community where students quickly make friends and feel at home. Both lively and inclusive, Peterhouse welcomes students with wide-ranging backgrounds, interests and opinions. The only things all our students have in common are high academic ability, dedication to their subject and a willingness to work hard.

To find out more about Peterhouse, why not come to an open day and meet our students and staff? If you’re unable to attend one of these, individual visits can usually be arranged with the Admissions Team, who are always happy to advise you and answer any questions you may have.
