Homerton is one of the most attractive colleges in Cambridge, with a mixture of old and new buildings set in spacious wooded grounds away from the noisy centre of town. It is also one of the largest colleges in terms of student numbers, with a thriving community.

Famous for training teachers in Cambridge and London for over 150 years, Homerton now offers most of the academic subjects studied in the University of Cambridge. All of its student accommodation has been either rebuilt or refurbished to a very high standard within the last ten years; it now boasts more en-suite rooms with internet connections than any other college in Cambridge. You can dine in a splendid gothic hall built in 1890, enjoy the dance studio, play squash and use the excellent computer facilities. It has a thriving Students Union with many different sports clubs and societies. Not all colleges can lay claim to founding a famous football club, yet every year Homerton students play against Leyton Orient for the Challenge Trophy in celebration of the founding of the club in 1881.
