Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge

Experience what it is like to study in Cambridge! During your time with Oxford Summer Courses, you will stay in one of three world-renowned Cambridge University Colleges. The colleges are located throughout the city of Cambridge, all within walking distance of the city centre, which has historical buildings, tourist attractions, and shops.

Fitzwilliam College was founded in 1869 as the first of the Cambridge colleges for men to admit students without regard to religious beliefs. The college is named after the Fitzwilliam Museum, which was bequeathed to the University in 1816 by Viscount Fitzwilliam. Throughout its history, Fitzwilliam College has produced many notable alumni, including the British broadcaster Sonita Alleyne, the historian David Starkey, and the journalist Beth Rigby.

Fitzwilliam College student accommodation for 13-15 year old students consists of modern rooms occupied by Cambridge University students during term time. The college site is centred around a beautiful Grade II regency manor house owned by the Darwin family. Fitzwilliam College is about a mile from the Cambridge city centre, and its safe location makes it a great base for exploring the city.
