All Cambridge MBAs become a member of one of the University’s Colleges, allowing students to experience the rich history and traditions of the University of Cambridge. Colleges offer accommodation including facilities for dining and socialising. Most MBAs choose to live in their College, with some providing single or family accommodation.
Each College has its own internal governance and procedures. They select their own students, subject to University regulations, and most admit both undergraduate and postgraduate students.
It is the responsibility of the MBA Admissions team to apply and secure a College place for you. This process happens after you have accepted an offer to join the MBA.

College life will enable you to diversify your School network – to meet and be inspired by students and academics from a wide range of disciplines. This exciting mix of individuals has led to exciting and fruitful collaborations – MBAs have joined forces with collegiate peers to combine knowledge and skills to create new ventures.

The majority of single MBA students are offered accommodation by their College. You can expect different facilities in different Colleges, some may offer more modern facilities including en-suite bathrooms whilst others may not. It is important to note that not all College accommodation is situated within the main College grounds and that many graduates live in College houses in and around the easily accessible city centre.
