Colleges provide accomodation for all of your time at Cambridge so there is no need to hunt around. Well-furnished rooms of a range of sizes are available at a range of prices, but rent is generally cheaper than in private accomodation. The college kitchens usually provide all meals, but this can mean student kitchen facilities are not well equipped. I didn't mind this though because college food was always convenient, delicious and reasonable value for money.×
Student cohesion is well mediated through the college systemReport
Transport is free. Aldi nearby. Not too much going out. Eating in college is quite cheap.Report

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
