Newnham College

Introduction

The College was established in 1871 as one of the first women’s Colleges. Newnham is still a women’s College, and the only undergraduate College with an all-female Fellowship.

The College hosts residential and day conferences, day meetings, workshops and other events in its buildings of warm red brick and white woodwork, grouped round extensive landscaped gardens. There is accommodation for up to 300, dining in College Hall for 180 guests, and a self-service buttery for 120. The College has a variety of meeting and function rooms, menus and facilities which can be tailor-made to suit your event. WiFi is available throughout the College.

A short walk away is the added attraction of Cambridge’s city centre: fine architecture, historic buildings and punting on the River Cam. Together, the College and the city make Newnham the ideal conference venue.

Newnham College Accommodation

The College's residential accommodation can comfortably host up to 300 guests. The buildings, all linked by an internal corridor on the ground floor, are set in beautiful gardens on a 17-acre site (and, rare among Cambridge colleges, you can walk on the grass!).

There are ground floor rooms with disabled shower and toilets adjacent, and lifts are available in three of the buildings. Tea and coffee making facilities are available in all rooms, as are towels.

Rooms are available either in the traditional college buildings - many have bay windows with spectacular views - or in modern buildings. Most have their own washbasins. A limited number of en suite rooms are available.
