Lucy Cavendish welcomes all prospective students to all subjects offered by the University. We actively seek to attract students from all backgrounds and particularly welcome applications from those currently under-represented in the University.

Our college is a vibrant and international community with students from sixty countries speaking a hundred different languages.

“The community at Lucy is one of the most diverse, inclusive and friendly.  I was supported in my academic work and also personally; everyone wants you to succeed and get the most out of Cambridge.  I’ve made friends for life at Lucy!”  Catherine

There are numerous opportunities to pursue your own interests from entrepreneurship to making music.  The College has a rich tradition of support for literary excellence: we host an annual literary festival and run a renowned national fiction prize with a student category.

Every year we hold a themed series of talks relating to important twenty-first century issues with leading speakers. 

Lucy is centrally located in Cambridge and within easy reach of all University departments and libraries.
