Fitzwilliam College is a dynamic, welcoming international community committed to developing the talents of all its 750 undergraduate and postgraduate students. One of 31 Cambridge colleges, it was founded in 1869 specifically to broaden access to the University of Cambridge.
We sustain that tradition of ensuring that every student, whatever their background, can fulfil their potential and make the most of the incomparably rich opportunities offered here. At the heart of its beautiful grounds is a fine Regency house once occupied by Emma Darwin.
This is also a forward-looking place, consistent with the College's motto of 'The Best of the Old and the New'. Most of its award-winning buildings date from the 1960s onwards, including some of the best student accommodation in Cambridge, a state-of-the-art auditorium and the Olisa Library.
