St John's College, Cambridge

University residence

St John’s College celebrated its 500th Anniversary in 2011. The College was founded on the site of the 13th-century Hospital of St John in Cambridge, expanding over the subsequent five hundred years to become the largest of the Oxford and Cambridge Colleges by area.

St John's has magnificent gardens and extends onto the famous Cambridge Backs beyond the River Cam, with its courts connected by the beautiful Bridge of Sighs. Although the Main Gate of the College leads right into the heart of the city, the College courts provide a serene and peaceful environment for guests.

The Bed and Breakfast offer bedrooms in recently refurbished rooms situated in North Court, Chapel and in New Court. These rooms accommodate students during Term time. Both twin and single rooms are available and all have ensuite facilities. The twin rooms have separate beds in different rooms and are connected with a small lounge.

The College has been awarded a 4* rating by Visit England, for the last three years, the last audit being in September 2020   

The College will be undergoing refurbishment from July 2021 to September 2022 and there may be some disruption and scaffolding around the College. There is a compound on The Backs but not located near any bedrooms although there may still be fencing up in different parts of the College  Full traditional cooked breakfast along with Continental breakfast will be served in the Temporary Buttery Dining Room located in First Court, which is also where the College Bar will be found.

PLEASE NOTE: THE COLLEGE CANNOT ACCOMMODATE PERSONS UNDER THE AGE OF 16YRS

We stayed for our daughters graduation (from a different college). Location was ideal. Being central it meant everything we needed was in walking distance The rooms were clean. The porters were helpful, lending us an iron, and letting us keep our bags in the portes lodge after we checked out, so...

Found the staff, in particular the Porters - very friendly, so professional - nothing was too much trouble. St. John's is the lovely setting and staying in the University was ideal for a visit to Cambridge - we felt, in a small way, part of the University for those few days.

Everything was good. In particular the staff in the Porters Lodge were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was excellent, especially the scrambled egg which was of the highest quality
