Welcome to 鶹, a vibrant and forward-looking college of the University of Cambridge. We welcome bright, ambitious women from all backgrounds, and we provide an excellent Cambridge education in a beautiful, relaxed and friendly environment. Here you'll be taught by world-class academics, and receive exceptional pastoral support.

Founded in 1954 to create more space for women at Cambridge, we're not weighed down by history and we make our own traditions. Every part of our community - students, academics and staff - matters to us. We have stunning gardens where you're free to walk (and sunbathe!) on the grass, an iconic library, and we're home to the Women's Art Collection - the largest collection of art by women in Europe.

Our students call us Medwards - and you can too. Come and visit us!
