Study with us
Churchill is able to guarantee you on-site accommodation for the full duration of your three or four-year degree. It’s part of what makes Churchill different to many other colleges and what gives us our strong sense of community.
Living on campus means that you can easily access all of Churchill's facilities and support services, leaving you free to concentrate on your studies and take full advantage of life in College and at Cambridge.
As an undergraduate here, you would live in a communal court within the College's spacious gardens and sports grounds. Rooms are arranged around staircases shared by students from different year and subject groups. This allows you to meet people from across the College and encourages each staircase to develop its own sense of community.
Rooms are modern, spacious, light, and warm. Over 40% have en suite facilities. All have access to excellent shared bathroom, laundry facilities, as well as free wireless internet. Students have access to snack kitchens for the prepartion of simple meals. These contain combination microwaves and fridges, but no ovens or freezers. We are a catered college with subsidised meal options catering to a variety of dietary requirements. Eating in our dining hall is encouraged and an important part of life at Cambridge.
The College has two staircase rooms adapted for use by students with hearing difficulties. There are eight rooms which have been adapted for wheelchair users or those with restricted mobility.
Prices vary with size and facilities, but all are affordable. For a breakdown of our rent charges, see our Fees and costs page. Rent is payable for just 30 weeks and includes heating and internet. You will be able to choose the type of room you would like in an annual room ballot, and while we can't guarantee you your first choice of room, you will be allocated a room to suit your needs and budget.
