Pembroke College Housing Amenities

  • Guaranteed on-campus housing in College for all visiting students.
  • Pembroke College itself dates from the 13th century, so rooms range from period housing in older buildings to housing in new facilities.
  • Almost all rooms are single-study bedrooms with a private washbasin.
  • Bathrooms and small kitchens are shared.


  • No meal plans are available.
  • Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all served in Hall, and are purchased on an a-la-carte basis.
  • A wide selection of food is available, and vegetarian options are always offered.
  • Small kitchens are available to students, but Pembroke housing is not equipped for full self-catering.

General Information

  • Students should provide their own linens and towels. We recommend purchasing them upon arrival in England, as they are inexpensive and take up a great deal of luggage space.
  • College housing includes access to laundry rooms, a gym, a computer lab, a music room, a dark room, an art room, meeting rooms and a small theater.
  • Individual rooms have wired internet access points.
