Accommodation and Meals

Participants will live in well-appointed single occupancy student bedrooms with either shared or private bathroom facilities, according to preference. A limited number of rooms have double beds, and these will be made available for those wishing to share on a first come first served basis.  Rooms will be located on the main College site.

There will be a Formal Hall each week. These three-course meals, a Cambridge tradition dating back centuries, will be served in Girton’s historic dining hall and will be preceded by drinks.

A traditional English Afternoon Tea, with sandwiches, cakes, scones and jam, and tea and coffee, will also be held in College.

Summer school participants will also be provided with swipe cards to take meals in the College cafeteria (breakfast, lunch, dinner), with sufficient credit to purchase approximately two meals (breakfast and one other meal) per day. This partial meal plan will give participants the opportunity to explore the many wonderful cafes and restaurants around the city.
