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). Please feel free to send us emails, however - 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 (here) and Third Court (here), as well as introductory articles (here), and a photo gallery (here).

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're taking a break from regular webinars whilst we do the application process. The grounds and facilities sessions will resume from February 2020.

3. Have a look at website resources

These include the College map and there is a section on Christ's facilities including pages on the hall, Fellows Garden, swimming pool, squash court, and boathouse. There's a page on accommodation, and we also have a couple of "made-from-home" films:
