Cambridge is 88.5km (55 miles) north of London, off the M11 motorway, a 45-minute journey by train.
Stansted Airport is 48km (30 miles) away.
The university occupies a central location within the city of Cambridge, with the students taking up a significant proportion (nearly 20%) of the town's population and heavily distorting the age structure. Most of the older colleges are situated nearby the city centre and river Cam, along which it is traditional to punt to appreciate the buildings and surroundings.
Examples of notable buildings include King's College Chapel, the history faculty building designed by James Stirling; and the Cripps Building at St John's College. The brickwork of several of the colleges is also notable: Queens' College contains "some of the earliest patterned brickwork in the country" and the brick walls of St John's College provide examples of English bond, Flemish bond and Running bond.
Cambridge colleges guarantee college-owned accommodation to single undergraduates without children for three years, and most provide for fourth-year students too.
The college is more than just a hall of residence: it's for living, studying and socialising.
The college communities include undergraduate and research students, teachers and lecturers.
The university was founded in 1209, and has a global reputation for outstanding academic achievement and world-class original research.
Every college and most departments have a computer suite offering a range of general and specialist software, as well as printers and scanners. Each college library contains the standard texts needed for undergraduate courses, as well as other materials. The University provides extensive library facilities in every department. The university library is a copyright library (entitled by law to receive a copy of every book published in Britain) and holds more than eight million books, journals and other documents. The university��s nine specialist museums and collections are open to students and the public. The university and colleges offer an array of recreational resources and facilities, utilised by the 700+ student clubs and societies.
