Cambridge accommodation


As some of us have started looking for accommodation, I would like to ask all students, past or prospective: what do you recommend - choosing accommodation near the College site or near the Faculty building?

Many thanks!

I went to Cambridge for my undergrad. I’d strongly recommend choosing something closer to your college, because that’s where you’ll be starting/ending each day (breakfast/dinner), doing your laundry, etc. Also the Sidgwick site is fairly removed from central Cambridge. Once you get a bike - which nearly everyone ends up doing - you’ll find it’s a very easy ride to lectures each day and back.

Thank you very much! That's very helpful!

I personally would choose accomodation near the Faculty. I hated the fact that whenever I had free time in between classes, I would be forced to stay at the Faculty as my accomodation was far off. In addition, unless you are going to be eating in college daily (which I was not), being near College adds nothing. College is merely for sleeping, eating and socialising, all of which you can do while living a distance from college.

Also, most private accomodation has laundry facilities so you really dont have to go to college to do your laundry at all.
