"The creativity, intelligence and activity of successive generations, rather than the fact that we're female [or] that Sylvia Plath studied here, make the College what is right now." Caroline Brown


Our Library is one of the best undergraduate college libraries in Cambridge (when the College was founded women were not allowed to use the main University Library, so it had to be well-stocked!). Together, the original and beautiful Grade II* listed Victorian Yates Thompson library and the award-winning new Horner Marwick extension house over 90,000 books and journals, and provide working space and computing facilities for students. The collection is kept as relevant, up-to-date and useful as possible by the annual purchase of over 1,000 new titles to support undergraduate study in all subjects, and Directors of Studies and students can suggest new purchases. The Library, along with most of the College, is WiFi-enabled, meaning that you can access the University online resources wherever you choose to work.
Newnham College library services are provided by the College's wholly-owned subsidiary company, Newnham College Library Company Limited.
