Open days and visits

As we are one of the most inclusive Cambridge Colleges, you will meet students and staff from a variety of backgrounds

Homerton is one of the newer Cambridge Colleges, yet we have more than 250 years of history behind us. We are at the centre of everything that is new at the University of Cambridge, located in inspirational surroundings, with first-class facilities and an atmosphere quite unlike any of the other Colleges.

As we are one of the most inclusive and diverse Cambridge Colleges you will meet students and staff from all over the world, from many different backgrounds. What unites our community is a passion to succeed and make a positive impact on the world.

If you want to get a feel of what day-to-day life is like at Homerton, the best way is to pay us a visit or take part in one of our virtual open days.
