You stays with your college, and whichever college you end up with dictates your location for the three years you are here. If you get a town college, then you are in luck because everything will be pretty accessible. Otherwise, you'll end up in a place where Nightlife and food is at least 20 minutes walk away. At studies facilities vary with colleges and faculty. Some has 24 hours library, others close on weekends. The economics faculty has bad facilities. The lecture rooms are too packed and has a musky odour to it. The audio system also has problems too often.

Very inclusive of LGBT, but not so much on poorer students. Many students here are bourgeois snobs, and can make poorer students feel out of place sometimes. Exorbitant rent by some colleges inevitably price some students out, reducing access while claiming to be accessible.

They usually have plenty of mindfulness workshops and yoga classes. However, if pressure from certain director of studies does not go down, no amount of yoga can destress you.
Support for international students
The university offers close to zero support for international students. Internationals have to pay college fees on top of tuition fees which EU students are not required to. College fees are around £7000, with tuition amounting to at least £22k, cost is extremely high.

The work load is extreme. But people are great: very social and friendly. Night life isn't great but can be good sometimes. Plenty of things going on, sadly there isnt the time to do much due to the workload. Cambridge is a beautiful city and is very easy to navigate, overall great city for students.

Tutors are brilliant, parties even better, always wanted to come here and it's really a dream come true. Would recommend Cambridge to anyone local or otherwise.

Very much enjoyed my experience. You get a lot of contact hours and top quality facilities. You're expected to work a lot, but at the same time there is a lot of opportunity to do exciting extracurricular activities. Although the student union is essentially none existant, the college system gives you all the teaching and life advice one would need.

The most beautiful campus in the world to be sure, and most of the teaching is great. The lecturers are amazing, however the supervision system would function better if the supervisors had some guidelines to follow, because as it is, it is completely up to them how they want to do the supervisions (what to talk about, what to teach us (clearly subjective in some cases)). My course is Human, Social and Political Sciences where the different papers papers go really well together. Cambridge is hard and don't respect students' well-being and mental stability enough. If the terms were longer, students might be able to keep up with all the work and still 'have a life', but as it is now, it is quite difficult to say the least. However, in the end, the experience is all worth it.

Specifically for Downing college, the accomodation is amazing and spacious, including a great ensuite. The food provided through the catered service is also a reasonable price, and very good quality. I am loving my course and all of the lectures, and think that the supervisions are extremely helpful in consolidating my knowledge.

So far loving my university experience, the facilities are great with large lecture halls and spacious labs that we can do our practicals in. The lecturers have been great and the supervisions very useful in consolidating my knowledge.

The University provides everything you need, from tutoring support to academic facilities. My course is challenging and makes me want to do always my best. I can recommend to anyone.

Best university, lovely city everything is very close to the college. Very confinient to walk / cycle anywhere. Tough lectures, taught by really experienced lecturers, definitely rewarding. There are lots of societies and sports to join, and most are very well funded either by college or sponsors. So you can expect really good events and socials.

Very well structured course for undergrads, academic support is amazing. Supervisions push students whilst helping them through tougher materials. lectures are fast paced though, and a lot of effort is required to keep up. Expect 40 hour work weeks as a 1st yea4 undergrad.

Supervisions really help to teach you everything you need to know, especially because they are usually in pairs so it's like having your own tutor. I do engineering and we have labs all the time that help to teach you the same content as lectures but with a practical approach. There's a mix of group labs and pair work so you get to try working with different people. The department also allows you to study a language but I haven't done this. The careers lady at the department is really good and will help you write cvs and get internships (a compulsory part of the course).

there's always a lot happening at Cambridge, so whether it's the careers service contacting you about events, or your department telling you about the latest talks, or just the student union letting you know they've got a chill night for you to go to — you're never bored and you can always be learning!

The campus is great as it's a collegate university, the colleges create a really friendly and supportive environment where it's easy to make friends. I study natural sciences, the course is incredibly intense and are times I think the work load is excessive, there are Saturday lectures! But the content is interesting and it provides a great grounding in science. I haven't made much contact with the student union or careers service really.

Mostly excellent course and great facilities. There is good support within colleges, however the stress imposed by the heavy workload is a con.

Although the workload is very intense, everyone here is extremely enthusiastic about their course subject and has a strong desire to learn more. Everyone is in on the same boat so even though it can be stressful at times, you know that everyone is feeling the same way and do not need to feel like you are behind.

Cambridge is a great city with lots to offer. College life is great to make close friends and socialise. Facilities such as lecture theatres, labs and practical sessions are very good, and teaching is top class. If you can fit it in nightlife is also pretty good, with plenty of bars, pubs and clubs.
