History to the present day

Homerton College has an unusual and interesting history which commenced with a London society in 1730 eventually aquiring our current site the Cavendish College, Cambridge in 1894.  It became a ladies college due to the University not approving of a mixed college at that time and did not start taking men again until 1976.

It was not until 2010 that Homerton was finally granted full collegiate status as a self-governing college of the University of Cambridge.

We are the largest college in Cambridge and also very proud that we are known as the friendliest College. 

We hope you enjoy your stay and have the opportunity to walk around our beautifully landscaped grounds.

room was basic but comfortable and warm. Appreciated the toiletries!!
Ms Louise C

Stayed at Homerton during the winter off season. Different to summer, almost nobody in the college, no conferences, either. Breakfast in the buttery instead of in the Great Hall. But everybody was very nice, the room functional, and the experience pleasant, like always. And remember, this is a B&B service only. Don't expect a hairblower, ironing board, or TV. There is excellent internet connection instead. After all it is a college, not a hotel.
Prof Jochen T
