The University of Cambridge is one of the world’s most prestigious academic institutions. It has its origins in 1209 when a group of scholars from Oxford, escaping riots and disorder, settled in Cambridge to study. In 2019, it ranked 2nd in THE World University Rankings.

Hughes Hall, established in 1885, is a College of the University of Cambridge with a vibrant, international and friendly academic atmosphere. A distinctive aspect of College life at Hughes is an egalitarian culture where interaction and engagement between the senior membership and students is open and encouraged.

 
Campers can take advantage of excellent facilities, including well-equipped teaching rooms, and large open spaces for outdoor activities.

Hughes Hall is located right in the heart of Cambridge, halfway between the railway station and the market square.

Rail and coach stations

Cambridge railway station is less than a mile (1.6km) away, and Parkside coach terminus is just 550 yards (500m) away. Hughes Hall is conveniently situated and is the nearest Cambridge College to both.

Access on foot

The main entrance for people and vehicles is by the Mortimer Road gate, where the Porters’ Lodge is located. Use this gate if you’re visiting the College.

There is a second entrance, for pedestrians only, by the gate at Gresham Court on Gresham Road. Access is by keycard only, so you will need to arrange in advance if you want to visit via this entrance.

Parking

We have limited on-site parking available for students and visitors, but you must arrange to use it in advance.

The Queen Anne Terrace car park, just by the main gate on Mortimer Road, is a convenient place to park for a short time.
