About the University of Cambridge

Cambridge is a collegiate university, which means it comprises University faculties and departments in different academic subjects, and a number of different Colleges. The university has 29 undergraduate Colleges, and each college has its own charm and perks for students as well as college grounds. A college is where students live, socialise and receive small group teaching sessions. A student must be admitted to a College before he or she can become a member of the University.

The University Colleges are within walking or cycling distance from the hotel and can be accessed throughout the city centre alongside the shops, restaurants, attractions and bars.

Many of the colleges can be seen from the River Cam when taking a punting trip along the iconic Cambridge Backs. Scudamore’s Punting Station is located directly beside the hotel and offers College Backs punt tours as well as other punting packages including an afternoon tea or gin tour.

The oldest college in Cambridge is Peterhouse, just opposite Graduate Cambridge, and was founded in 1284 by Hugo de Balsham, Bishop of Ely. The land that Graduate Hotel is built on belongs to Peterhouse College.
