Robinson is one of the newest colleges in the University of Cambridge. It was founded with a donation by the entrepreneur and philanthropist Sir David Robinson and formally opened in 1981. It now has 80 Fellows, and around 380 undergraduate and 300 graduate students.

The red-brick main block houses the majority of the undergraduates, library, chapel and our excellent dining and conferencing facilities. In addition there are a number of older houses dating back to the 1890's, converted for college use and new accommodation blocks. The whole site centres around the large tranquil garden and lake.
