Visiting Christ's
  Book for College tours and/or online events

For prospective students who can get to Cambridge, we're delighted to be able to offer an opportunity to visit, whether you walk around the College grounds in person or book onto our of our College tours or other events. We are also continuing our online webinars and other support for those students who are not able to get to Cambridge but would like to see our grounds and facilities.

If you're planning to visit Christ's, please read the information below carefully to check the details work and avoid disappointment.


Visiting in person

Student-led tours

We're running a series of Student-led College tours from March to August (with a break for our exam period). Please read the information at the link carefully if you are interested to avoid disappointment. Alternatively, during our July Open Days there will be lots of student-led tours (large capacity) and parents/guardians can attend with prospective students for those ones.

Self-guided visit to the grounds during opening times
Check opening dates & times
Prospective undergraduates and offer holders are welcome to walk through the grounds of Christ's on a self-guided visit during our opening dates and times. This will be on your own or with up to two family members or friends. Please read the self-guided visit page for details (please don't just turn up without looking at the information as it's best to check what's open when, plus there's an optional tour download). Please be aware that this is not available 24/7 - there are times and a small number of dates when the College will be closed (see the self-guided visit page for details).

Even if you are able to visit in person we recommend also using the online resources below as well. In reality you'll actually see a lot more on our website and via the regular webinar.

If you can't visit in person, please don't be too disappointed. Every year many of our applicants apply from all over the world without ever having set foot in Cambridge. We try hard to make our website as helpful as possible so do use the resources below.

Regular Webinar February - mid-Sept

Christ's College: a look at the grounds and facilities

Poster for webinar called Christ's College: A look at the grounds and facitilies
  Information and Booking

From February until mid-September we run 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 (especially if you live a long way away and cannot visit in person). 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!
