Our students enjoy quality accommodation and facilities right in the heart of Cambridge.


We offer good value, high quality student accommodation in central Cambridge. All our undergraduate rooms are located within College grounds or just outside, and you can live with us for every year of your undergraduate studies, whether your course lasts for three years or four.

Food and drink

Eating together is part of life at Jesus College. Our accommodation includes kitchen facilities so you have the option of cooking for yourself, or you can use our cafeteria, café-bar, or dine with us in Formal Hall. Find out more about food and drink at Jesus.

Arts, drama, and music

We have a thriving musical life in College, from orchestras to jazz groups to big bands. There are also two student choirs who sing in Chapel four times a week. Our music practice rooms are all on site and free to use.

The College also supports a huge range of arts and drama events, performances, and exhibitions. Our art and sculpture collection is unique in Cambridge, and we hold an annual student run arts festival that showcases new work. 

Sports and societies

We have great on site sporting facilities. Whether you're serious about sport or just want to relax, you'll be able to take part and join a team.

There are dozens of student societies and groups at Jesus, and if your interest isn't represented we'll support you to set up a new one. 


Our working library, the Quincentenary Library, is one of the finest in Cambridge. It's open 24 hours on virtually every day of the year and offers a quiet, comfortable, pleasant space to work in as well as rooms for group study and discussion. Also in the library building is our Kwok Room computer centre.
