Since ill-health twice forced me to cancel the booking, I entangled both SpeedyBooker and Selwyn College in a fabulously complex accommodation process. However, the support that I received from Conference and Events [Selwyn] and University Rooms [SpeedyBooker] was second to none. Beginning the booking process in late winter, I finally achieved a double overnight stay in early autumn. Great en suite accommodation and a couple of hearty breakfasts in the most spectacular of settings.

There was a lot of noise from a function in the grounds of Cripps court until 11 pm. I may have chosen a room on the main college site if I had realised it would be so loud.

Lovely to have linen/pure cotton sheets especially in the hot weather. Good room. Not convinced by the level of bathroom cleaning but this could be to do with Lino floors.

Excellent value for money - rooms in hotel condition, very good breakfast in beautiful dining hall and the the porters were super helpful and courteous. Highly recommended.

A really lovely stay. The room was basic, but was what I expected, the staff were fabulous, and I’d happily stay again.

Anon

The college has a lovely atmosphere. Our room was clean, bright and had an ensuite bathroom.

Arrival information & directions

Address: Grange Road, Cambridge, CambridgeCB3 9DQ, United Kingdom

On arrival, please go to the Porters' Lodge with your booking confirmation where you will be given the key and directions to your room.

Despite the term “Porters”, it is not part of a College Porter’s duties to handle luggage. You will need to carry your own luggage to your room.

Please vacate your room and return the keys to the Porters' Lodge on the day of departure by 9.30am to enable the rooms to be serviced for incoming guests.

Directions:

By Car: The easiest way to approach the College by road from the north, south or east is from Junction 12 of the M11. Take the A603 (Barton Road) towards Cambridge. Pass Wolfson College on the left. About 1.5 miles from the M11 you will reach the traffic lights of a pedestrian crossing. Turn left into Grange Road directly after this pedestrian crossing opposite the Hat and Feathers public house. Continue down Grange Road and go straight over the T junction with Sidgwick Avenue and Selwyn College is immediately on the right-hand side. Parking is not permitted in the Fellows' car park in front of the Porters' Lodge.

Unfortunately, Selwyn College does not offer on-site parking. Free car parking is available on some of the roads surrounding the College. 

By Train: Taxis are available for hire from outside Cambridge railway station and the fare should cost under £10 from the station to the College. Regular buses run from the railway station to the city centre.

By Bus: Take a Citi 4 or Uni 4 bus from Emmanuel Street stop 4 destined for "Madingley" or "Cambourne" to reach West Road and Grange Road with stops close to the College.

By Air: You can travel to Cambridge by rail, coach or taxi. Stansted is the closest major airport about 40 minutes away.
