Our co-founders included Dame Millicent Garrett Fawcett, the famous campaigner for women’s suffrage. We remain proudly a women’s college today.
The college has a mixture of beautiful historic and contemporary buildings, set in stunning gardens. We are located by the University’s Sidgwick site and University Library, and about 10 minutes walk from the historic centre of Cambridge.
