Selwyn College, Cambridge

University residence

Selwyn College offers a warm welcome and recently refurbished single ensuite accommodation in Cripps Court. Located on Grange Road within easy access of the M11, the Sidgwick site and a short walk into town. The Porters' Lodge and Dining Hall are in the Old Court on the opposite side of Grange Road. 

The College offers single ensuite rooms with a shower. Also provided is bedding (two pillows and duvet), bath towel, complimentary soap and shampoo/shower gel, plus tea and coffee making facilities in the room.

Please note: The College has confirmed that there will be the construction of a new library and auditorium in Ann’s Court at the northern end of the college starting in Spring 2019 and due for completion late 2020, therefore this will be taking place during bookings in Ann’s Court bedrooms with Selwyn College. I hope you appreciate that no time is a good time for this kind of construction, however, any noisy work will not be permitted before 9am or after 5pm and the builders will work to be as discreet as possible during their time here with Selwyn College .

Stayed at Selwyn College for two nights while accompanying my daughter on interview at another college. My stay was comfortable and good value for Cambridge. Excellent breakfast in hall. Selwyn is approx 15 mins walk from the town centre, and a 10 min bus ride from the railway station. Howeve...

I was in I12, from memory, though I can't swear to it. If I had a small criticism of the room, it would be that the showerhead was fixed. Otherwise, I have no complaints. And the coffee machine was broken on the Sunday morning -- that was a considerable disappointment!

I love staying at Selwyn. The one slight drawback is that breakfast only starts at 8am. I have to forgo it as I always need to be up and out by then for 8:30am meetings.
