Christ's college is one of colleges in Cambridge University. It offers a good tutorial support to its students. All members are encouraged to explore a wide range of outside interests. Many extra-curricular activities are done by the students: like sport, music, drama, films, debating, and many more. It is a small college, but has earned a name for its excellence.... More

Okay, full disclosure: I attended Christ's College, so my view may be a little biased. However, Christ's is a beautiful, small college, laid out in four 'courts'. First court includes cobblestones and some of the college's older buildings, with some being remnants from as far back as 500 years ago. There is also the Master's Lodge, which is especially recognisable... More

My favourite college. Three courts of contrasting architecture. The chapel is a must and if you're there on a weekday you can take a stroll through the garden and take a peek at one of the country's oldest swimming pools.

In my opinion Christ's College is one of the nicer colleges. There is more to see then Colleges, such as Trinity.

It is so beautiful, I wish I could have studied in a place like that. Tha church is amazing and the gardens are wounderful. It is crowded on Sundays, but it is worth to go!

We booked accommodation here and can make only positive comments about the whole experience. We arrived by train and took a bus into Cambridge. The bus stop is within a few meters of the entrance to Christ's College. The grounds of the college are absolutely beautiful and once through the front gate quiet reigns. The porters at the front gate... More

We were part of a conference group staying at Christ's. The porters were really helpful and gave us a great welcome. Everyone at the College did all they could to make sure we had a great stay. It has a wonderfully lecture theatre with the best up-to-date kit I have ever used. In strong contrast was the ancient and very... More

Christ's College is right in the centre of town and one can easily combine a visit here with a shopping spree. The moment one steps through the gateway one is taken to another world -it is surprisingly peaceful inside despite being in the heart of a bustling town. Unlike a number of colleges,Christ's College does not charge you to look... More
