Rent Subsidies

Newnham operates a system of rent subsidies for all students in receipt of either a Cambridge or Newnham Bursary, including EU students.

These subsidies are deducted from the Lent Term college bill just after Christmas, and range from £100 (for those on full government and Cambridge Bursary support) to £500 (for those with small government grants and Cambridge Bursaries). Around a third of all Newnham undergraduates are in receipt of a rent subsidy. Support is also given to bursary-holders in their final year if they wish to remain in college accommodation for part of the Easter vacation to revise.
