Postgraduate Accommodation

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 postgraduate career. And all year round you can enjoy the facilities both at this location off Grange Road near the University's Sidgwick and West Cambridge sites and also at the College's central site on Trumpington Street.

Your new Cambridge home

College accommodation is offered to all graduate students on a one-year course for the duration of their course.

For PhD students we offer accommodation for the first three years of the course. However, we deduct one year for each year that you have previously spent in Cambridge college accommodation, whether at Corpus or elsewhere, as either a postgraduate student or a fourth-year 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 and 34 single ensuite study-bedrooms. *Please note, however, that the availability of flats in any given year is often restricted.
  • Single rooms are also available in large houses on the Leckhampton site at Cranmer Road and Selwyn Gardens.
