"What I think is special about the College is that it's home to an incredibly diverse range of people." Kate Norgrove

About Newnham

Who we are, where we are, what we do...

Newnham is one of the 31 colleges of the University of Cambridge (see map). We have 400 undergraduates, 150 postgraduates, and about 70 academic staff. The spacious gardens adjoin our sports fields, and the University's Sidgwick site is directly across the road.

The College was established in 1871 as a house in which young women could reside while attending lectures in Cambridge. Newnham is still a women's college, and the only undergraduate college with an all-women Fellowship.

Our charitable purposes are "Education, Learning and Research". In At Newnham you will find information on the ways in which we continue to support those purposes, for undergraduates, graduate students and academic staff.

This part of our website gives more details of where we are, who we are and how we used to be.  You can find our Statutes and College policies here, too.
