Undergraduate Study



Queens’ is one of the friendliest Colleges, situated in a cracking central location. Despite being a fairly big College, you won’t struggle to get to know everyone.


Queens’ is a large, centrally located College. It is characterised by openness and informality, making it modern, welcoming and comfortable.

We want our students to pursue their academic interests and achieve their full potential. Queens’ has been in the heart of Cambridge for more than five centuries, and today it supports a thriving academic community of undergraduates, graduates and academics.

Queens’ undergraduates are guaranteed accommodation for three years. We offer a full catering service but each landing has a kitchenette for those who want to self-cater. All rooms enjoy internet access and wi-fi is available throughout the site. Queens’ provides superb facilities for the arts. There are also squash courts, a gym and punt hire within College, and the sports ground and boathouse are nearby.

The sole condition for admission to Queens’ is academic potential. We welcome applicants from schools with no prior history of application to Cambridge. We will work hard to ensure that no applicant is prevented from studying here because of a disability or social or financial disadvantage. We take particular care in selecting students. Applicants are interviewed sympathetically by experienced Fellows who want you to show us your strengths.

Achieving a place at Queens’ brings responsibilities. There’s a firm expectation at Queens’ that every student will work hard to fulfil their academic potential and maintain our reputation for academic excellence. We have a detailed programme of support to help first-year students make the transition from school to university.

You’re welcome to contact the Admissions Office directly, to look on the website or attend an open day to find out more.
