Many colleges make some provisions for accommodating graduate students, either within their own walls or in graduate halls of residence or purpose-built flats.
Colleges differ in the amount of accommodation available to students, so you may wish to consider the type of facilities provided when deciding which college to apply to.
If a graduate student finds that their college cannot provide accommodation for them, or if they prefer not to live in college accommodation, the University Accommodation Service can help them to find a place to live.
Students should apply, in person if possible, to
The Head of the Accommodation Service at 18 Silver Street,
Tel: (+44) 1223-353518,
Web Site: http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/accommodation.
The office is open from 9.00am to 12.45pm and 2.00pm to 4.45pm, Monday to Friday and all graduate students are welcome to call without an appointment to discuss their housing needs or seek advice.
If a personal interview is not feasible, please write, making sure that the letter contains the answers to the following questions:
- Which college has accepted the student
- Whether the student has applied for college accommodation
- Whether the student is single or married and if they have a family, the age and sex of any children
- What maximum rent can be afforded
- Whether a car will be available so that housing outside Cambridge can be contemplated
- When the student expects to arrive in Cambridge and the proposed length of stay
Married graduates, whether they have a family or not, should note that accommodation in Cambridge is expensive and hard to find. Students, especially those from overseas, are advised that they should come alone at first, unless, of course, they have already had a definite offer of housing.
