The accommodation in Cambridge city centre tends to be expensive, but if you are prepared to stay slightly further out you may find a cheaper option.


We have collected together some further detail and links below to help, however please bear in mind that the information is not exhaustive and that we recommend that you read the information / liaise with providers to check that your chosen option suits your needs before making a booking. We have not visited premises and cannot make specific recommendations.  

Accommodation in a Cambridge College

At most times of year

Depending on the time of year, it is sometimes possible to book B&B accommodation in a Cambridge College as Colleges often offer this option if they have rooms available out of term. There are a range of price options depending on the size and quality of individual rooms, however do check the age restrictions before booking a room.

If you are interested in staying in B&B accommodation at Christ's College,

  • You must be at least 16 to stay in the B&B accommodation.
  • You must be accompanied by an adult if you are 16 or 17 years old.

Please read the B&B information, the full terms and conditions and the accommodation booking webpage for B&B accommodation at Christ's College.

Information about B&B accommodation in all Colleges is available here.

Accommodation during the interview period:

Where possible, we arrange accommodation for applicants to Christs who are attending interviews. If you have applied to Christ's, please wait to receive details about this in your invitation to interview.

Unfortunately we are not able to arrange accommodation for parents and guardians if they are traveling to Cambridge with you, but hope that the information above will be helpful.
