CB1 is a 15-minute walk from campus and is close to Cambridge train station, supermarkets and plenty of restaurants. It’s also less than ten minutes from a bowling alley, gym, theatre and cinema, so there’s always something to do nearby.
There are 392 en-suite rooms, and 119 studio flats, some of which are suitable for couples. CB1 is managed by Host Students, who provide 24-hour support from the on-site reception.

Kitchens (shared between three to ten students)
You'll need to pay a £150 application fee to reserve the room, followed by a £250 deposit seven days later. Before your contract starts, there will also be a £50 utility deposit and a one-off £50 internet connection fee, plus five weeks' rent payment.
After 1 June 2019, some of these fees will no longer be payable due to changes enforced by the Tenant Fees Act.
