About us

Fitzwilliam was founded in 1869 with the specific goal of broadening access to Cambridge. Today the College sustains a tradition of ensuring that every student, whatever their background, can fulfil their potential and take advantage of the rich opportunities offered here. The College provides a supportive environment in which its members can reach the highest level in all aspects of university life. In selecting its students, the College is looking above all for intellectual commitment and achievement.

Thinking Green 

At Fitzwilliam College we are committed to making a positive impact on the environment.

We have a dedicated and active Environmental Committee made up of Fellows, staff and students who work together to develop green initiatives and increase awareness of environmental issues within College.

The College provides students with a range of opportunities to get involved with environmental initiatives, such as the annual FitzOff competition - a prize is awarded to students who make significant energy reductions in their corridors a two week period, as well as Meat-Free Mondays in the Buttery.
