Accepting both postgraduate and undergraduate students, this is considered one of the most cosmopolitan of the Cambridge Colleges since more than two-thirds of its students come from outside the United Kingdom.

Stayed for the Nnedpro summer school of nutrition. Nice rooms, wifi works (in most places), spacious conference rooms (with yummy biscuits) and pretty good food in the large dining hall. Very helpful staff.
