Postgraduate Accommodation

Our postgraduate students, and our clinical medics and vets, are accommodated in rooms in our Victorian and Edwardian houses or a group of flats either in the College grounds or a short walk away. Rental prices are reviewed annually.

Carmefield (one of our Wordsworth Grove properties) is being completely renovated, with work set to be completed in Summer 2021. We hope to house postgraduate students in Carmefield from September/October 2021.

Newnham offers its postgraduate students single study bedrooms in a range of college-owned properties, all within a few minutes of the main College buildings and particularly convenient for the Arts Faculty/Sidgwick Site campus and the University Library.

Each house has at least one kitchen/common room, together with a good provision of shower-rooms, bathrooms and toilets. All postgraduate houses and flats have washing machines and drying facilities in them, with the Rosalind Franklin Building having access to these in a communal laundry room. The kitchens have gas or electric cookers, refrigerators and freezers, but residents must provide all other cooking equipment. Duvet and pillows are provided, but you must use your own linen. You may choose to cater for yourself here, but you can also use the College’s Buttery and Iris Café. All houses have a network phone for free University and College calls.
