More than just a place to stay
The combination of excellent amenities surrounded by peaceful gardens and acres of playing fields makes Leckhampton campus a wonderfully welcoming home to settle in for your graduate career. And you can enjoy the facilities at this west Cambridge location all year round.
Your new Cambridge home
We usually house all graduate students in College accommodation for the duration of their University course. That means up to three years as a graduate, or up to a total of six years if you previously lived in Cambridge as an undergraduate.
Within the campus we offer an appealing choice of accommodation, designed to house single or multiple occupants in a range of award-winning modern and historic buildings. Here’s an overview:
- Leckhampton House is a beautiful Victorian residence connected to the dining hall, with space for two Fellows and five students.
- The nearby George Thomson Building (known as GTB) was designed by legendary architects Ove Arup and Partners in 1964 and refurbished in 2013. It has space for 32 graduate students in single rooms.
- The Kho Building was designed by architects Bland Brown & Cole and completed in 2012 to provide six self-contained flats for couples and 34 single ensuite study-bedrooms.
- A further 50 single rooms are available in large houses on the Leckhampton site at Cranmer Road and Selwyn Gardens, as well as flats for student couples and families. And a newly rebuilt house in Barton Road – easily reached through the campus gardens – contains 14 single rooms (4 ensuite) and a small flat.
