Postgraduate Study


Although many full-time postgraduate students are housed by their Colleges (either within the College grounds or in postgraduate hostels or flats), few Colleges can house all their student members. There can be a strong demand for suitable private rented accommodation in Cambridge but the Accommodation Service is available to offer friendly and helpful advice on housing.

The Accommodation Service is there to help students find accommodation in Cambridge, whether it’s University-owned or privately-owned accommodation. It is the Accommodation Service’s responsibility to help anyone coming to the University on an official visit as visiting scholars, members of staff (working at least 20 hours per week), and everyone studying full time at the University to find somewhere to live.

The Accommodation Service helps to relocate families from across the world and can provide information on living in Cambridge and assist with school information and applications, and details about local facilities, sports and libraries.
