The best way to get a feel for what Robinson College and the University of Cambridge have to offer is to come and visit us on an open day. The Mathematics open day is designed specifically for those who are considering applying to study Mathematics at Robinson College and the University of Cambridge.

In the morning, you will have the chance to talk to the Director of Studies in Mathematics and to meet current Mathematics undergraduates at Robinson College. You will be able to take a tour of the College, eat lunch with us, and make a brief visit to the Centre for Mathematical Sciences, which is a brisk ten minute walk from Robinson. The Mathematics Faculty organises a programme of events in the afternoon. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask all the questions that you have and to find out all you need to know to help you decide if Robinson College and Cambridge University are right for you.

Arriving by Car

Despite being a relatively small city, Cambridge suffers disproportionately from traffic congestion. There is also a complex network of one way roads in the city centre. It is best to approach Robinson College from the west and to allow 30 minutes to find a suitable parking place. Allow at least 45 minutes if you wish to use the Park and Ride facilities in Cambridge and walk from the city centre bus station.
