Student Life

Emmanuel is known as 'the friendly college', and we have a flourishing, inclusive & supportive student community.

Our students live in comfortable College accommodation in the centre of Cambridge, with private study spaces & WiFi connections, and have access to all of our excellent range of College facilities. We have a varied range of College societies & clubs, who hold regular events, alongside our Student Unions: ECSU & the MCR.

We have a beautiful Georgian Hall, where a varied & affordable selection of meals are served daily, a student-run Bar, music practice rooms, and a free Laundry. Our sports facilities provide excellent resources for our clubs: a fully-equipped Boathouse on the Cam, a large sportsground a short cycle away, and squash courts & well-equipped gym in college.

The College site is arranged around extensive gardens, which provide spaces for tennis & badminton courts in the summer, and we even have a swimming pool for warm summer evenings!
