About Robinson


Robinson is the University of Cambridge's newest College. It was founded with a donation by the entrepreneur and philanthropist Sir David Robinson and formally opened in 1981. It now has 100 Fellows, and around 380 undergraduate and 300 graduate students. Our distinctive and Grade 2* listed redbrick building offers a modern environment for living and working.

The College provides accommodation for all of our undergraduate students and is home to our library, chapel and excellent dining and conference facilities. There are also a number of older houses dating back to the 1890's on the site, converted for college use and new accommodation blocks.

The whole site centres around the large tranquil garden and lake and students and staff are encouraged to make use of the open spaces.  You can walk on all the grass at Robinson College!
