Having issues with applying for Student Finance?

A few students have contacted us as they have had trouble finding the correct course on Student Finance. Please note that on the drop down menu you must select ‘Girton College – University of Cambridge’ and then find your course, not ‘University of Cambridge – Girton College’ as this will only show you postgraduate courses. If you are having trouble with this, please see here for screenshots of how to do this. If you phone Student Finance, they may tell you to contact us. Please do not do this until you have followed the above steps.

Fees and Funding

The College’s current fees and charges can be found here. Updated fees and charges for 2020/2021 will be available in due course.

The College and the University work together to offer the maximum possible support to all disabled students.  We would like to take this opportunity to ask you to let us know if you have a disability and if you will require any support or advice when you come up to Cambridge.  Some students are reluctant to disclose a disability as they fear that it may be viewed negatively.  We would like to assure you that this is not the case and the earlier we are aware of any disability, the better we are able to ensure that all the arrangements you require are in place if you take up your place here.

Like all the Colleges at Cambridge, we work in close cooperation with the Disability Resource Centre (DRC).  Their dedicated team of experts provide support, advice and guidance for disabled students and students with specific learning difficulties.  With your permission, our College staff can liaise with them to create a support plan that meets your needs.  If you would like to discuss any of this further with a member of the DRC team, then either phone 01223 332301 to speak to one of their Disability Advisers, or email

We strongly recommend that you inform both us and the DRC if you have any disability.  To do this, please complete the Disability Disclosure Form and return it to the DRC. If you have already disclosed your disability as part of your application you do not need to return the form. Please make sure you tick the consent box to give the DRC permission to send a copy of the form to the College.  Upon receipt of this form, the DRC will send you an email with further important information for disabled students, including forms to complete and return.  Information is also available on the DRC website:
