Come and help shape Fitzwilliam, a College at the cutting edge of research, wellbeing and sustainability set in the most verdant grounds in Cambridge. Founded in 1869 to broaden University access, we are an international community committed to developing the talents of its 750 students.

A group of Fitz alumni and students have founded a new organisation to develop meaningful and rigorous conversations around the use of data.

Cambridge researchers Professor Shankar Balasubramanian (Fitzwilliam, 1985) and Professor David Klenerman have been awarded the Millennium Technology Prize for their development of revolutionary DNA sequencing techniques.

The College is pleased to announce the appointment of Peter O’Connor to the role of Development Director from June 2021. Peter will succeed Dr Nicola Jones, who moved to the recently-created post of Director of Communications and Engagement in December 2020.
