Need a bed for the night?
For those wishing to attend one of our open days, we offer bed and breakfast for £15.50 per night. When open day bookings go live in 2019, you will be able to request a room using a link below and the Admissions Office will contact you to arrange payment and confirm the booking.
If you are unable to visit us during an open day, then you are still welcome to come and look around Pembroke to see if we are the place for you!
Prospective Student Tours
We are pleased to be offering a series of tours for prospective students. Please see below for further information, including dates and how to book.
Please note that tours need to be booked in advance by clicking on the relevant date below, and are limited to a maximum of 40 places. We therefore ask that prospective students bring only one guest with them, in order to ensure that we have as many spaces as possible for those thinking of studying with us.

|January 2019 date TBC||TBC|
Events for Schools
Each Cambridge college is linked to specific areas in the UK. Pembroke offers a range of events for students from its link areas:
- Bedford Borough and Central Bedfordshire
- Leicester and Leicestershire
- London Borough of Southwark
- Scotland (shared with Homerton and Selwyn Colleges)
Once we have publicised our events to schools in our link areas above, we’re always glad to consider applications from other state schools. If you’re a teacher or advisor and would like to hear more about these opportunities, please contact us.
We also have a monthly e-newsletter; if you are a teacher and would like to find out about upcoming opportunities for your students then please do sign up!
You're very welcome to come and look around the Pembroke College grounds any day between 9am to 5pm. We are only closed to visitors during the exam period in May and June, and on occasional weekend days for events such as weddings.
We encourage schools and colleges to arrange small group visits. We also encourage those who are visiting from outside the UK and are unable to attend one of the College Open Days to get in touch. If you can't travel to Cambridge and back home in a day, we may be able to provide accommodation outside term-time.
Cambridge is a wonderful place to explore but its winding historic streets can be congested. Cars have limited access to the city centre and parking can be challenging, so we suggest you consider other forms of transport.
