Sidney Sussex College Founded in 1596, Sidney Sussex College is a diverse, inclusive and forward-looking community set among elegant buildings and tranquil gardens in the heart of Cambridge. in teaching and supervising undergraduates. We also provide a well-stocked library with 24-hour access, a range of study skills support sessions and a large pastoral team.

Sidney Sussex’s small size (around 105 students in each year) fosters genuine inclusion. There’s no such thing as a typical Sidney student, and undergraduates come from every background and from all over the world. We encourage applicants from all school types, and admission is based solely on academic merit and potential. We’re committed to providing all the support needed to achieve your full potential, and most of our Fellows are directly involved

First-year students are accommodated either on our main site or in nearby Cromwell Court. In other years, they may choose to live on-site or in a College-owned house. Rooms range from traditional study and bedroom ‘sets’ to modern en suites, and all have internet points and access to kitchen facilities. Meals are also available in our beautiful eighteenth-century Hall. Sidney is well known for the quality of its food and our candlelit formal halls are always popular. Being at Sidney Sussex isn’t only about studying – our students manage to combine academic achievement with busy social lives. Our sports facilities (including a recently refurbished

gym) see enthusiastic use, and there are College teams for all major sports. Music and drama are also well supported, with regular plays, concerts and recitals. The choir has made critically-acclaimed recordings, and tours regularly in the UK and overseas. One of the College’s greatest assets is its strong community spirit, with a friendly and supportive relationship between students, Fellows and College staff. The best way to experience this is by visiting us yourself: to arrange a visit, please contact the Admissions Office.

Sidney is so much more than just a place to work. Its small size means it’s really easy to get to know everyone and get involved with all sorts of opportunities. The atmosphere is incredibly inclusive and friendly. Charlotte
