Living in college for all three (or four) years of your undergraduate degree is great. Per month, accommodation is on the expensive side, but we only have to pay for the time we are there. This has its disadvantages too of course since we have to vacate our rooms three times a year or pay to keep them over the vacation. Facilities at my college (Trinity College) are great and rooms are very well located: right in the city centre.×
colleges sort of feel as a closed community with less involvement to othersReport
Clubs and nightlife, very very cheesy music. The cost of food - 2nd most expensive Sainsburys in the country i'm told.Report
Cambridge is a very expensive place to be a student, just as bad as London.Report
How to deal with stress.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.
