We offer a wide range of accommodation, from characterful Victorian houses through to modern apartments.
All accommodation is ideally situated for easy access to the College, the University departments and the historic city centre of Cambridge.
Lucy Cavendish aims to accommodate all its undergraduate students for at least the first 3 years of their studies, subject to availability. In addition to our single rooms, we can offer one bedroom apartments and studio flats suitable for couples and two bedroom apartments suitable for families.
From 2021, women who for religious or cultural reasons need to be in women-only accommodation can be given a room in ‘sets’ which are women only.
Similarly, mature students and those who prefer a quieter environment may express a preference for the Histon Road rooms which are not on the main campus itself.
You will have the chance to see our accommodation if you come along for an Open Day. Once you’re offered a place here, we can help you decide which is the best option for you. We can also give you some tips about what to bring (and what is already provided), so that you feel at home and settle in as quickly as possible.
All our rooms are furnished with a single bed (in Mount Pleasant Halls all beds are small doubles), desk, desk chair, lamp, wardrobe, drawers, shelves or a bookcase and a noticeboard. Kitchens come equipped with a cooker, kettle, toaster and fridge/freezer.
Lucy Cavendish has signed up to the ANUK National Code for Assured Accommodation, giving you peace of mind that your rights to safe accommodation of a good standard are protected.
