Churchill is a college with a distinctive voice and a modern outlook. Less formal and less institutional than other Cambridge colleges, we are an outward looking community not bound by tradition. Driven by a passion for innovation and creativity we are committed to providing our students with the very best platform for academic and personal growth.
Churchill College is a community of some 485 undergraduates, 330 postgraduates and 216 Fellows from a diverse range of disciplines, ages and backgrounds. Our academic membership is complemented by strong links with industry and a network of over 7000 alumni throughout the world, all of whom are united by a dedication to academic excellence, innovation and leadership.
Prospective students are welcome to visit Churchill informally, most days (including weekends), between 09:00 and 17:00. Due to ongoing COVID precautions and to avoid disappointment, please contact our Porters’ Lodge (reception area) in advance, so we know when you are intending to come:
+44 (0) 1223 336000 / firstname.lastname@example.org
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. The College’s private areas, such as accommodation and the Library, 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. There’s more information about Churchill on our virtual tour, including about our accommodation, etc., at https://www.chu.cam.ac.uk/study-us/undergraduates/schools-and-colleges-liaison/virtual-visits-year-12-introduction-cambridge/.
