Undergraduate Study



Robinson College has an incredible community atmosphere: everyone is lovely and always willing to help. All of us undergrads live on the main site, so there are plenty of opportunities to interact with people from all years and subjects.


Founded in 1977, Robinson is one of the most modern and ambitious Cambridge Colleges. Famed for its strong sense of community and relaxed atmosphere, there’s nowhere better to pursue your studies and interests.  


All undergraduates live in outstanding accommodation within the College grounds for the duration of their original course. Around half is en suite, with the remainder sharing 1 or 2 bathrooms between 2 or 3 individuals (no bedrooms are shared). 


Our facilities are exceptional: no matter your interests, there are opportunities to pursue them here.

Our library is accessible 24/7 and boasts a comprehensive collection of books, while our Brickhouse Theatre Company is one of the largest student theatre venues in the University after the ADC.

Robinson also has some of the best College food in Cambridge, whether in the cafeteria-style Garden Restaurant, at the Red Brick Café and Bar, or at the optional twice-weekly formal dinners in the Hall.

Location and student life

Robinson is perfectly located for life in Cambridge – directly opposite the University Library and extremely close to the arts and sciences departments. A short walk or bike ride takes you directly into the city centre.

The magnificent College gardens are much loved by students and academics alike.

At Robinson, the student body is truly diverse, coming from a wide range of backgrounds and from all over the world. They have the very best academic and pastoral support, alongside access to a community of scholars who are keen to help students with their work, allowing them to achieve at the highest levels.
