The Chapel building

Robinson Chapel was designed as part of the main College buildings by Gillespie, Kidd and Coia. One of the largest College chapels in Cambridge, it has two outstanding stained glass windows by John Piper and Patrick Reyntiens. The Chapel also houses a world renowned Frobenius organ, a harpsichord by David Rubio and a Steinway piano.

Use of the Chapel

We are very happy for Chapel space to be used by College members and, when scheduling allows, for individuals and organisations from Cambridge and beyond to hire the Chapel.

Therapy Boxing

Chaplain, Simon Perry, has been running therapy boxing classes at Robinson for over 10 years, and it has grown to be one of the most popular sports at College.  Crucially, the aim is about having fun first, aided by dreadful 80’s music!  Simon “It’s primarily for people who don’t like sports, who don’t like exercise but want to use their bodies.  It’s not boxing in a full contact sense, but we do box properly”. The feedback from our students has been fantastic and they have benefitted in many different ways, Student Izzy McCrae “It helps you distract yourself from the stresses of being at Cambridge”. “It’s good exercise and it’s just fun”, Jessica Cronin.
