Location and student life

Selwyn is a medium-size College located a short walk from the city centre. Our spacious site is set in beautiful gardens that create a calm and relaxing environment.  

The College has produced leaders in many fields and is at the heart of Cambridge’s academic facilities. The University Library and Sidgwick Site, home to many arts and humanities faculties, are adjacent to our gardens; and we’re located between the central and West Cambridge sites where most science departments are found. 

We welcome applicants from all social and educational backgrounds and are committed to fairness in all our processes. Academic excellence, strong subject commitment and the potential to do well on the intended course are the criteria for admission. 

If you relish the prospect of studying in an intellectually challenging environment, and are willing to put in the time and effort needed to be successful in your studies, we believe you’ll feel at home at Selwyn.
