    Due to the current advice and guidance from Public Health England around the Coronavirus outbreak, unfortunately overnight bookings are closed for the foreseeable future.  We will keep you updated here on any changes.

    Alumnae are welcome to stay in College in our guest rooms at a discounted rate throughout the year, subject to availability.

    For price and availability, please contact the Events Office by calling 01223 762267 or emailing


    During term-time, alumnae are welcome to join our students at breakfast and pay at the till. A cafeteria style breakfast is available in the Dome as follows:

    • Monday to Friday: 08.00 - 09.30
    • Saturday: 11.00 -13.30 (Brunch service only)
    • Sunday: No breakfast available

    Out of term, breakfast is served in the Dome during the following times and can be pre-booked with your accommodation:

    • Monday - Friday: 08.00 - 09.00
    • Saturday - Sunday: 08.00 - 09.30

    Check-in and Check-out

    • For weekdays, alumnae can check-in to their rooms from 13.00 and check-out at 09.00.
    • For weekends, alumnae can check-in to their rooms from 13.00 and check-out at 10.00.

    Further details

    • During term there may not be any rooms available in College depending on student occupancy levels.
    • If there are no rooms available in College, rooms can sometimes be booked in Paula Browne House, but alumnae rates only apply if booking is made no more than 10 days in advance of arrival.
    • The reduced rates are only available to alumnae and their families, and there is normally a limit of two reduced rate rooms per booking. Further rooms, if available, can be booked at the full commercial rate.
    • Bookings must be made by an alumna, who must also be part of the group staying in College.
    • The type of breakfast available may vary - you will be advised about breakfast arrangements when you arrive.
    • Occasionally the College kitchens are closed for maintenance and at these times we will not be able to offer breakfast.

    All Cambridge University alumni are also entitled to up to 15% discount on a range of local hotels using their CAMCard, which is available from the Development and Alumni Office.
