About Homerton College
It is also one of the largest colleges in terms of student numbers, with a thriving and diverse community.
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 (wired or wireless) than any other college in Cambridge. Our library is modern, well-stocked, and a light and airy place to work.
You can dine in a splendid gothic hall built in 1890, play squash in our squash courts, football on our football field (and hockey, rugby etc.), have a snack or a drink in our Griffins bar and buttery, or just wander through the orchard. Homerton has a thriving Students Union (JCR for undergraduates and MCR for postgrads) offering many different sports clubs and societies for music, drama, or indeed anything you fancy.
Not all colleges can lay claim to founding a famous football club, yet every year Homerton students play against Leyton Orient Supporters Club for the Challenge Trophy in celebration of the founding of the club in 1881.
