The College was founded as ‘New Hall’ in 1954; six years after the University began awarding women degrees. The College was founded to welcome all outstanding young women of potential, no matter what their background, to the University of Cambridge – with a mission to provide the best education for female students possible. More than 60 years later, this remains absolutely at the heart of their existence. They chose to remain a College for women in recognition of the fact that there is still much gender inequality facing women in the world today. Thus there is a need for institutions such as theirs which offer the additional focus on women’s education, to make sure their students get the most from Cambridge and, later, to help them meet the challenges of the workplace. Alumna you may have heard of: Include Sue Perkins, Mishal Husain, Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell, Tilda Swinton, Claudia Winkleman and current President Dame Barbara Stocking. Full English breakfast is included in the room cost and available in the dining hall. Breakfast times are Monday-Friday 08.00-09.00 Saturday 08.00-09.30 Sunday 09.00-10.00 Although the college is unable to cater for lunch and dinner, there is a wide range of pubs and restaurants offering good food all within a 5-10 minute walk of the College.
