Student Life

There’s much more to this summer experience than challenging yourself academically and we do all we can to help you make the most of your time in our beautiful city and the UK. 


We offer accommodation in Pembroke College and our student residences, also known as hostels.

With its extensive gardens and quiet courtyards, the College is a beautiful place to live and work. You'll be housed in a single-occupancy room with shared kitchen facilities, shared bathrooms, internet access and a cleaning service. 

All rooms are single-occupancy and facilities are shared with other students on the programme.

Pembroke College, founded in 1347 by Marie de St Pol, Countess of Pembroke, is the third oldest of the Cambridge colleges and the first to have its own Chapel. Despite being located in the middle of the city, Pembroke presents a tranquil environment with varied architectural styles framing open courts and beautiful gardens.

Pembroke is medium-sized by Cambridge standards, with approximately 70 Fellows, 430 undergraduates and about 190 graduate students. The College is an intimate yet diverse community, committed to welcoming students of exceptional talent regardless of their social, cultural or educational background. We pride ourselves on our strong tutorial system, offering support in whatever way we can - academic, practical and financial - to our students as they pursue their chosen academic path and develop their intellectual potential to the full. But it is not all about work at Pembroke, and students enjoy extracurricular pursuits such as music, drama and sport as well as actively engaging in numerous charitable activities.
