Staying in a Cambridge College
The University of Cambridge has a unique collegiate structure. Students at the University belong to both departments and colleges, receiving tuition in both, and living and learning in community in the historic College buildings. There can be no better way to experience the atmosphere of Cambridge, than to stay in one of these beautiful old Colleges. This is a unique opportunity to experience what life would have been like for Newton, Babbage or Rodney Hill, as they walked in quiet courts and gardens or breakfasted in the College Hall.
By special arrangement, we aim to share this collegiate experience with you. Some of the most historic Colleges offer accommodation to the standards of leading hotels, and delegates to ICTP may choose to stay in excellent refurbished, en suite rooms in six of the colleges. They will eat breakfast in the Colleges, and be able to walk in the footsteps of the University’s famous alumni, usually inaccessible to tourists in the city.
Prices per room will be £99/night bed and breakfast (single room) and £139/night for bed and breakfast (double room). This is excellent value for city centre accommodation, particularly given the unparalleled experience of experiencing Cambridge University 'from the inside'. Double rooms will only be available to those delegates travelling with a registered accompanying person.
College bookings will open when registration opens and rooms can be selected and paid for during the conference registration process.
