The best way to get a feel for Churchill College is to visit. To avoid disappointment, please contact our Porters’ Lodge on +44 (0) 1223 336000 to tell us when you’re hoping to come and check that we’re open.
Visits from prospective undergraduates
Prospective undergraduate 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 call our Porters’ Lodge on +44 (0) 1223 336000 before you plan your visit.
The College’s private areas, such as accommodation and the Libraries, are not available to drop-in visitors but you can get a great sense of the College as an environment by looking around its public spaces.
We regret we can’t do tours for individuals. If you have a school group wishing to visit, please contact our Outreach team.
Churchill participates in Cambridge University’s open days, with accommodation and other facilities available to view, tours of College with current students, and Admissions Tutors on hand for you to chat with and answer your questions.

Open day overnight accommodation (individuals and groups)
If you’re an individual seeking overnight accommodation around a College or University open day, you can check availability at Churchill using the links on our Bed & Breakfast page. Note that this accommodation booking process will stipulate that all guests must be over 18. However, around open days, we can accommodate visitors of minimum age 16. Therefore, if you are 16 or 17, just mention this and the fact that you’re attending an open day in the Special Notes section of our booking process, so we can validate your booking.
We can often accommodate overnight school or college groups around open days too, at a VAT exempt rate. To check availability and pricing, email firstname.lastname@example.org If we have availability, you’ll need to send a full rooming list, showing the names and roles (student or staff) of each attendee. We’ll also ask you to complete a VAT exemption form and send full payment in advance. Note that overnight school or college groups must be accompanied by an appropriate number of responsible adults.
Visits from prospective postgraduates
Prospective postgraduate students are also welcome to visit Churchill informally, most days (including weekends), between 09:00 and 17:00.
