This page is part of the offer-holders section for students who have been offered an undergraduate place at Christ's College.
We'll show you around the College properly when you arrive as a new student, however if you would like to see/visit the College whilst you are holding an offer, please see the information below.
Ways to see Christ's as an offer holder
1. Self-guided visit to see the grounds
If you are able to get to Cambridge, offer-holders are welcome to walk through the grounds of Christ's on a self-guided visit during our daily opening hours. This will be on your own or with up to two family members or friends. Please read the self-guided visit page for details including the opening times and closure dates. Please be aware that this is not available 24/7 - to avoid disappointment it's important to check the date and opening times on the self-guided visit page.
2. Offer holders webinar and in-person tour
If you would like a guided visit, we hold an annual webinar for offer holders showing the grounds and facilities in early February, and an in-person guided tour for offer holders in early April. This years dates are:
|Date||UK time||What?||How do I book?|
|Wednesday 1 February 2023||16:30||Offer Holder webinar: a look at the grounds and facilities at Christ's||The booking link will be sent with offer letters (for new offer holders) / offer update letters (for offer holders deferred from a previous year)|
|Friday 3 February 2023||09:30||Offer Holder webinar: a look at the grounds and facilities at Christ's||The booking link will be sent with offer letters (for new offer holders) / offer update letters (for offer holders deferred from a previous year)|
|Monday 3 April 2023||14:30||College tour (in-person) for offer holders||We will email you by early March with details of how the group tours will work and a booking form.|
These opportunities are very much optional for those who would like to attend, and they will be basic tours - you will be shown around properly at the start of your degree (i.e. don't worry if you can't attend!).
3. Use the Virtual Tour
You may also like to look up Christ's College on the Cambridge University Virtual Tour. This resource includes 360 degree photography, articles and films from Colleges and departments.
Do also explore your subject's department on the virtual tour.
4. Have a look at website resources
The College website includes a College map and there are picture pages for First Court, Second Court, Third Court, New Court and the Fellows' Garden, as well as a section on Christ's facilities including pages on the Hall, Canteen, Working Library, Old Library, Law Library, Chapel, Theatre, Common Rooms, Café and bar, music spaces, swimming pool, squash court, sports fields, gym facilities and boathouse. There are also pages on accommodation and laundry rooms, as well as some of the larger meeting rooms such as the Function Room and Plumb Auditorium.
