Visiting Christ's (unfortunately not possible in person at the moment, but why not visit us online?)
This page sets out the details for prospective students wanting to visit alone or with a family member or two.
|Important update - College closed|
|Christ's College is currently closed to visitors due to the coronavirus pandemic. Unfortunately, it will not be possible to visit as a prospective student in person until further notice (we'll update this page once the information changes, and if you'd like to receive an email notification, please register interest here). Whilst the College is closed, please feel free to send us emails - we are working from home but we are here, we are friendly and we will be happy to help you via email (normally also available on phone)|
Ways to 'visit' Christ's online
1. Use the Virtual Tour
Look up Christ's College on the Cambridge University Virtual Tour. This tour includes 360 degree photography, articles and films from Colleges and departments.
For Christ's you can see 360 degree photography of the Fellows' Garden and Third Court, as well as introductory articles, and a photo gallery. NB we are in the process of making further films, which will be released in the Cambridge Virtual Open Days.
2. Attend Christ's College: a look at the grounds and facilities
We have a regular webinar for prospective students which talks you through the grounds and facilities at Christ's, including accommodation. This is a virtual visit, and people who've attended so far have found it useful. Look out for it on the open days and events page - you'll need to book in advance.
We vary the time of day for these webinars to ensure that everyone can attend, so if the timing of a scheduled session does not suit you, if you wait there will be further versions scheduled at different times. We don't expect anyone to miss lessons or long-distance international students to attend in the middle of the night!
3. Have a look at website resources
These include the 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, Café and bar, swimming pool, squash court, and boathouse (more to come!). There's a page on accommodation, gym facilities, and we also have a "made-from-home" film where our students talk about the College:
Things to look out for in Christ's
- Hobson's Conduit
- Treasures in the Old Library
- The hidden swimming pool
- The Fellows' Garden
- Milton's Mulberry tree
Our address is Christ's College, St Andrew's Street, Cambridge CB1 3BU
