Undergraduate Study



Queens’ has a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. It’s small enough to have community spirit but big enough you can meet new people. The library is amazing but on the flip side you can relax in Q Bar and play pool!


Situated directly on the River Cam with buildings on either side of its banks, Queens’ College is right in the heart of the city.

We are one of the largest Colleges in Cambridge, but that doesn’t stop us from placing each individual student’s needs at the centre of everything we do.


Queens’ students are guaranteed 3 years of accommodation, either on the main site in one of our beautiful buildings, or a short walk away at Owlstone Croft or Grange Road.

The College is characterised by its diverse architecture, with a building having been added every century since our founding in 1448. This means that you can choose to be surrounded by regal Tudor beams, classical Georgian architecture or the humane modernism of Cripps Court, as well as many other buildings.

Our bedrooms are a combination of en suite and shared bathrooms. All students also have access to a kitchenette, as well as a wide range of menu options in our superb dining hall and café/bar.


We have a historic, well-stocked library built on the site of the College’s old chapel, as well as extensive sports facilities on the main site and at the nearby sports ground.

Queens’ is also a fantastic place to be involved in the arts, with a full theatre space used by our acclaimed student drama group Bats.

Music plays an important role in College life, and there are many other societies on offer.
