2016 Accommodation Band 1
We have a small number of these hostel rooms which are offered at a budget price because they are smaller than other rooms and are located in hostel basements. Whilst these rooms are basic, they still offer the essential facilities of bed, desk, chair, storage space, access to shared bathroom and kitchen facilities, and a regular housekeeping service.
Pembroke’s houses on Lensfield Road are only a short five minute walk from the main lecture venue (the Department of Engineering on Trumpington Road) and a ten to fifteen minute walk from Pembroke and King’s Colleges. They are close to a number of popular pubs and restaurants and Cambridge’s central shopping area is nearby. These hostels have undergone some refurbishment in recent months. All rooms are for single occupancy with shared bathroom and basic kitchen facilities.
Panton Street hostels are situated close to the University Botanical Gardens and are a five to ten minute walk from the main lecture venue (the Department of Engineering on Trumpington Road). There are a number of student residences on this street, all with gardens. Pembroke and King’s Colleges and the central shopping area are all within easy walking distance. All rooms are for single occupancy with shared bathroom and basic kitchen facilities.
