Christ’s College is an oasis of calm in the very heart of the city. One moment you are in the quiet and tranquil gardens, then pass through the 500 year old Great Gate into the busy shopping centre. Christ’s College is the perfect location for visitors who are on a leisure break or are in Cambridge on business.
The accommodation available houses undergraduates during term time. The rooms are therefore not equipped to four star hotel standard but they are clean, comfortable and situated in a quiet location in the heart of the College.
All en-suite rooms will be located in Second Court or in Third Court.
All rooms in Second Court are twin or double rooms, some of which are en-suite rooms.
Alternatively, there are twin and double rooms with their own designated bathrooms. The bathroom usually being located directly oposite the bedroom.
All rooms on C D and E staircases are light and spacious and overlook the Second Court College gardens.
Rooms in Third Court are located in New Court and are all single ensuite rooms. The ensuite is a "pod" style bathroom/wetroom. These rooms are smaller than those on C, D and E staircases but are comfortable and bright and overlook the Darwin Garden.
The single or twin rooms on 4 staircase are large bright rooms, bathrooms have a bath and toilet rather than a shower in the room. There is a shower located along each corridor. Rooms on 4 staircase overlook King Street which means these can be noisy, due to traffic.
Rooms on Z staircase are all single rooms with shared bathroom facilities, these are ideal for those on a budget. However, these rooms overlook Hobson Street so they can be noisy due to traffic.
Rooms on W staircase are all single rooms with shared bathroom facilities, but are ideal for those on a budget. The rooms overlook the College gardens and should be on the quiet side.
All rooms are equipped with tea and coffee making facilities as well as a welcome pack of toiletries. Towels are also provided. All rooms are serviced daily by a College ‘bedmaker’.
Please note we are not able to accept bookings for Stag and Hen parties
We do not accept bookings for anyone under 21 years of age and therefore our accommodation is not suitable for families or young children.
History to the present day
Christ's College was first established as God's-house in 1437 by William Byngham, a London parish priest, for training grammar school masters. Shortly after receiving its Royal Licence from Henry VI in 1446, God's-house was forced to move from its original site, as this was needed for the King's new project (what was to become Kings’s College). God's-house moved to its present site in 1448 where it was re-founded in 1505 as Christ’s College by Lady Margaret Beaufort, mother of Henry VII. Lady Margaret has been honoured ever since as the Foundress.
First Court dates from the 15th century and is the oldest part of the College. The Master’s Lodge, Chapel and Hall are all found in First Court as are Charles Darwin’s rooms. Charles Darwin studied here between 1828 and 1831.
Copies of the College history and postcards, as well as Darwin related products are available from the Porters’ Lodge.

Mrs Karen Clare, April 2013: We had a fantastic stay for my husband's 40th birthday, thank you. We'll definitely book again.
Dr Ann Marshall, April 2013: We were charmed by the Porter and by the accommodation and breakfast.
Ms Janet Zmroczek, April 2013: Much better than other colleges I've stayed in
Mr Robert Meakin, April 2013: Ideal city centre location, inevitably glorious setting, and welcoming, helpful staff. Room simple, clean and a perfect base from which to enjoy Cambridge.
Mrs Nichola Bamford, March 2013: The reception we received was welcoming, curteous and helpful - nothing was too much bother. A map of the complex was usefully marked with our room and where to have breakfast. We really felt that we were experiencing just a touch of college life, I could have done with at least another couple of days and as a bonus the taxi rank was just outside the door. A walking tour of Cambridge is an absolute must.
Mrs melanie alderton, October 2012: We had a lovely stay - only one comment - wifi would have been good- staff were wonderful
Dr Johanna Barry, October 2012: It was wonderful to stay in the heart of Cambridge. I could not fault the staff they were incredibly friendly and helpful. The college rooms were comfortable though the greatest joy for me was walking to them through the college grounds. Breakfast was standard institutional affair and as adequate but such forgettable and to be fair typical of this sort of accommodation. All in all highly recommend.
Miss Yasmin Hampton, October 2012: Me and a friend's stay at the university was exceptional. The room and breakfast was to a very high standard. The view from the window was very pretty, as were the grounds within the university. Finally, all of your staff could not have been more helpful and friendly.
We will definately come and stay again, and have recommended the university to our friends.
Thankyou very much

The breakfast was excellent, with catering being very organised and polite.

Ms Rowena Armstrong, October 2012: We couldn't quite work out how to lock the bathroom but otherwise very comfortable
Mr Peter Langham, October 2012: The porters were very pleasant and helpful at Christ's, for example they allowed me to leave my bag in the lodge for a few hours after checking out so that I would not have to lug it around the town. I can imagine most hotels might not provide such a service free of charge. This made a positive difference to the remainder of my time in Cambridge.

Mrs Julie Deakin, July 2012: Differing parking advice, but we got there in the end. The porter we originally spoke to suggested Park and Ride, however it seems you can't leave your car overnight at the Park and Ride car park, so it defeats the object really. Lovely, tranquil location in the middle of it all. Absolutely fabulous location. Rooms were basic, clean and what we expected. Was a delight staying here.

Mrs Rita Maria Peacock, December 2011: Lovely spacious comfortable room with plenty of storage and a very good bathroom so we had a private suite which overlooked beautiful gardens.

The only point I would suggest is that if the temperature dropped slightly we would welcome a blanket or bed cover.

Mrs GILLIAN BYRNE, September 2011: We both had a lovely time in a wonderful historic setting. Staff were extremly friendly.

Cambridge is , of course a beautiful city, vibrant, always interesting, but being able to share in the lovely surroundings of an ancient College was very special. We shall certainly return and my French Friend was eqally impressed: a bonus for her was the proximity of M&S!
Most highly recommended!
Mr Graham Sunderland, September 2011: What an ideal location in the centre of Cambridge in such a historic seat of learning.

One point of comment: a clothes-hook on the inside of the shower-door to hang up one's towel would have been welcome.
Lucy Mannion, December 2010: Great, lovely experience
Olaf Steinke, October 2010: Very helpful porters, nice room, good breakfast, altogether recommendable

LAW YUK HEUNG, September 2010: Excellent experience for I and my daughter's staying at the room D4 at Christ's College, Cambridge. It's a pitty that we stay only for 1 night.

Francoise Close, September 2010: My son and I, inveterate trevellers both, were very impressed with the standard of the rooms (would that Oxford had had such student accommodation when I was an undergraduate there), and we congratulate you on the courtesy of the porters, the bedders and the kitchen staff, who I understand are experiencing tourists at Christ's for the first time.
Linda Friend, September 2010: Really enjoyed staying at Christ's College. Wondeful ambience and gardens. Amazed at how quiet it was even though in the centre of town.Had problems with non functioning WC but porters dealt with swiftly by tranferring us to another room which was fine. Would certainly use the University Rooms website again.
Philip Ainsworth, September 2010: Enjoyable and quiet stay at Christ's College. Helpful and very obliging proters and staff. Would strongly recommend a stay here.
Christine Prentice, September 2010: Will be more than happy to visit again and to try accommodation at other Universities now. The Porters were wonderful when we had great difficulty with the lock to our room. Christ's College is particularly handy for the bus station and central for everything else too!!
Jean Carroon, September 2010: We were struck by the extreme quiet in the courts and felt privileged to walk straight in. The Porters were very pleasant and welcoming.
Ayse Tuzlak, September 2010: My only complaint is with the sheer number of stairs to the rooms (I counted 35 outside, with more inside), which is a great inconvenience for anyone with luggage, pushchairs, or even the mildest of mobility problems. Otherwise, though, the room was spacious and clean and the porters were very kind. Thank you.
Dawn H. Ballantyne, August 2010: I am so glad I discovered this booking on the internet. I felt like I got an authentic experience by staying at Christ's College. Everyone was wonderful, from the guards to the kitchen! I will certainly recommend this website to anyone who is coming your way. Thank you for everything. p.s. I did leave my raincoat in the closet when I left and my son stopped by later-no one knew what happened to it. I do take responsibility for leaving it behind., but I wish it had been found!
Hillel Weinberg, August 2010: I felt warmly welcomed and well cared-for by the Christ's College staff. The room was snug but quite adequate and modern. Visitors should be prepared to climb steps. The location was, in a word, perfect.
Andrew Pethebridge, August 2010: Porters couldn't have been more helpful with information and always with a smile.
Cecilie Solvang, August 2010: We had a wonderful stay, and give our thanks to the most friendly, helping and welcoming porters :)

College very central, within easy walk of all sights, bus station, taxi rank. Thank you. Would certainly use the accomodation again.
Richard Gilby, August 2010: We had a wonderful experience. Christ's College is truly beautiful but the people at Christ's made the visit very special.

Leung Tak Yee, August 2010: The breakfast was excellent. The transport is very convinience for the tourists. The staffs are polite with genuine attitude. The double room is warm with the peaceful scenary of the college. If we can use the internet service(we had brought a note book) , it would be better.
Aisling Quinn, August 2010: We'll be back!
Julie Lunn, August 2010: We had a fantastic experience at this college and will highly recommend to our friends - thank-you! The porters were particularly freindly and helpful, as well as the staff we encoutered in the dining hall.

Mr Keith Brookes, July 2010: An excellent service and good value
MARY LAIDLAW, July 2010: Great value stay in a lovely central location, the grounds are beautiful. Room was very large, clean with a comfortable bed.
ROSALIND JANSSEN, July 2010: Greatly impressed by the spacious room, and the beautiful outlook onto the second court. Felt I was much better off that in the new block. Agree with another comment on your website about lack of a mirror in the room.

Catriona Stirling, July 2010: What a great location for a visit to Cambridge right in the centre of town but with the quiet of the courtyards and gardens. Accommodation good and would definitely book again if returning to the city.
Giles Ellis, July 2010: My wife and I experienced a level of assistance from the porters at Christ's College Cambridge which was as good as if not better than any we would expect from the concierge of a 5 star hotel. They couldn't have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent. Thank you.
Kenneth P. Wheeler, July 2010: Emphasise the marvelous atmosphere and tranquility of Oxbridge colleges.
It would be useful
 to inform potential visitors of the Cambridge Park & Ride facility.
 to remind visitors to take their iPods, or equivalent!
Dr Alan Thomas, July 2010: Very pleasant staff (porters), beautiful setting, room a bit basic but perfectly adequate, slightly disappointed not to be taking breakfast in the Hall! Pity there is no breakfast on Sundays as we would have stayed another night

mrs. helen hansen, July 2010: This was a wonderful visit right from the first moment with such a genial welcome from the Porter and his staff, who were so helpful always. My room was very comfortable - right on the ground floor. I looked out of the window and felt I was in "Brideshead Revisited" Thankyou very much.
