Selwyn is one of the most delightful colleges in Cambridge, reflecting many of the characteristics that one would expect of this university city.
The College offers authentic university accommodation but in state-of-the-art surroundings. Each room is for single occupancy, with the option for en-suite bathroom at an additional weekly supplement. Breakfast and evening meals are served in the College’s historic dining room with beautiful views across the elegant courtyard.
Getting to school: The College is about a 20-minute walk from the school. There are also direct bus services (Uni 4) to the school and cycles are on hire from the school at £25 per week. We recommend cycling as it’s a great way to get around Cambridge and the surrounding countryside.

Selwyn College, University of Cambridge, Grange Road, Cambridge, CB3 9DQ
Founded in 1596, Sidney Sussex is one of the most historic and architecturally appealing colleges in the university, and certainly one of the most interesting. One of its more infamous and controversial alumni was Oliver Cromwell, who has been voted one of the 10 most influential people in the history of England and whose head is now buried in the College grounds after being posthumously executed by Charles II in 1661. The College is situated in the heart of Cambridge, 15 minutes’ walk from the school, offering a glimpse of life as a student at one of the world’s top academic centres.
The contemporary residential campus is positioned 300 meters from the College and has single room accommodation, with shared & en-suite bathrooms. Breakfast and dinner is served in the College dining room each morning and evening. The residence has WiFi throughout and laundry facilities.
