Selwyn, also known as ‘the friendly college’ by students around Cambridge, is a truly special place to call home with a welcoming community in which anyone, regardless of their background, is invited to share in the love for studying their subject. Not too big or too small, they’ll always be a friendly face around without it feeling stuffy and it is old enough to have the exciting traditions of Cambridge and beautiful architecture - but is young enough to not have tourists flocking around the gardens all year.
The site is directly adjacent to the Sidgwick site, home of most arts and humanities courses, and less than a five-minute walk from the University Library. Selwyn is also equidistant from West Cambridge and the city centre for sciences, making it a perfect location for everyone, especially as you are guaranteed accommodation on site for the entirety of your undergraduate degree.
