Visit Us

With a 42 acre campus – the largest college site in Cambridge – Churchill is set on the edge of the bustling city centre, close to a number of University departments and amenities.

Just a short bike ride from the city centre, the campus is served by a huge variety of self-contained facilities and services, and is home to an active community of students and academics.

The Churchill Archives Centre and the Møller Institute are also located within the grounds.

Prospective Students

Prospective students are welcome to visit Churchill informally, most days (including weekends), between 09:00 and 17:00.

Please be aware that the College is routinely closed to visitors each year from Easter Sunday through to the middle of June, during our “Quiet Period” surrounding exams. There may be ad hoc closures at other times too so, to avoid disappointment, please contact our Porters’ Lodge (reception area) before your potential visit, to tell us when you’re hoping to come and check that we’re open to prospective students.

When you arrive, go to the Porters’ Lodge at the front of College, to let our Porters know that you’re thinking about applying and would like to have a look around. The Porters will then be able to give you a map, so you can get your bearings.
