About Girton College

The opportunity to achieve your very best


We are a College that knows and takes an interest in every student as an individual. There is tradition of inclusion, and a well-developed ethic of care. We encourage personal development by offering excellent academic and pastoral support. This environment offers every student the opportunity to achieve their very best.

Set in over 50 acres of parkland and gardens just outside the city centre, the main College site offers spacious living accommodation, a state of the art library, and some of the best on-site sporting and leisure facilities in the University. There is the opportunity for every student to participate in music, sport and the arts at all levels, from the complete beginner upwards.

International Students

We have a large friendly community which includes students from all across the world. We work closely with the International Student Office to provide a smooth, informative experience for all. There is plenty of help and advice on the International Office website. There are many Welcome events which take place in a variety of locations both in the UK and abroad throughout August and September. Further details are available on the Cambridge Alumni website.
