We think Robinson has some of the best accommodation available in the Cambridge Colleges. About half of our graduate rooms have their own bathrooms, and many of the rest share a bathroom between just three or four students.

Each student has easy access to the facilities you would expect to find in your home. All students have their own bedroom. Every house has a kitchen for students to use, there are washing machines and tumble driers on site, and of course there are our beautiful gardens to relax in at the end of a hard day's work.

Graduate students wishing to live in College are mostly accommodated in the new graduate complex situated in Sylvester Road which provides a choice of rooms with en-suite bathrooms, or rooms with shared facilities, or in Thorneycreek and Thorneycreek Cottage (other houses on the College site).

New graduate students will be offered accommodation on a first come, first served basis, once they have met all the conditions set by the Board of Graduate Studies. This process usually begins in early July. The College aims to offer accommodation to the majority of its new graduate students. Graduate students will usually be allocated rooms for a total of 3 years, with ballots for choosing rooms being held for 2nd and subsequent year students. Subject to availability rooms may be allocated to graduate students who have already had 3 full years of living-in. The majority of rooms are on site and are of good quality.
