Accommodation and Meals
Accommodation is offered in Pembroke and King’s Colleges and their student residences (also known as hostels). With their extensive gardens and quiet courtyards, the colleges are beautiful places to live and work. You will be housed in a single-occupancy room with internet access, cleaning service, shared laundry facilities and kitchens, and shared bathrooms. Rooms vary in size, location, amenities and distance from the main lecture venue (the Department of Engineering on Trumpington Road), and this variety is reflected in the pricing of the different accommodation bands. For further details see the Rooms page on the sidebar menu.
The partial meal plan is structured so as to provide you with ten cafeteria-style meals per week at the college in which you reside.
Formal Dining is an integral part of College life. Over the summer you will be able to attend five College dinners known as ‘Formal Halls’. These three-course candlelit meals are enjoyed in a beautiful dining hall with your fellow students, faculty and PAs, and are a Cambridge tradition dating back hundreds of years.
