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 just after offers are sent, and an in-person guided tour for offer holders at Easter. This years dates are:

Date UK time What? How do I book?
Tuesday 30 January 2024 16:30 Offer Holder webinar: a look at the grounds and facilities at Christ's Booking has closed
Wednesday 31 January 2024 10am Offer Holder webinar: a look at the grounds and facilities at Christ's Booking has closed
Friday 12 April 2024 14:30 College tour (in-person) for offer holders Booking has closed

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. Sure, it's normally a bit slow to load, but if you bear with it, this resource includes 360 degree photography, articles and films from Colleges and departments.

For Christ's you can see 360 degree photography of First Court, The Fellows' Garden and Third Court, example accommodation rooms in Second Court, Third Court and New Court and introductory articles.

Do also explore your subject's department on the virtual tour.
