We provide all undergraduates with accommodation for up to four years. The College also has an up-to-date library with impressive IT facilities.

Although in close proximity to many University faculties and departments, Downing College’s tranquillity and spaciousness are striking. The beautiful Neo-Classical buildings, set in a landscape of lawns, trees and gardens, provide a calming oasis in the middle of a busy city. Accommodation is of a very high standard: all rooms are single occupancy and internet connected. Over half have en suite facilities and several are adapted for students

Music at Downing is very strong, with a flourishing Chapel choir and frequent concerts and recitals. The Howard Theatre provides a stunning venue for drama and music. The College’s sporting facilities are also exceptional, including a sports ground, a boathouse and a gym, as well as tennis and basketball/netball courts. The large, tree-lined Paddock is a relaxing recreational space that’s available for all to enjoy. Downing provides a friendly and sociable academic community for students studying all subjects offered at Cambridge. We welcome
