It offers a wide choice of en suite rooms in both Ann's Court and the newly refurbished Cripps Court, as well as standard accommodation in the Victorian Old Court.

The College offers easy access to the M11, but is also close to the city centre which is just a short stroll away through the beautiful gardens and the famous riverside Backs. Selwyn College's conference spaces are open to all, whether or not they have any previous connection with Cambridge.

The Conference and Event Team at Selwyn prides itself on the professional, yet personal, service with many years’ experience between the team. The warm welcome that Selwyn College extends to guests, combined with the acknowledged high standard of its food and services, has meant that many organisers choose to return again and again.

What an excellent service, I made a tentative enquiry to start with, but the professionalism of the service, the quality of the responses and the overall service in general has made me feel confident that the event we have been planning will be successful and that everybody attending will have a great time.
