Heads of Houses

Timeline of the colleges in the order their students are presented for graduation, compared with some events in British history.

There are also several theological colleges in Cambridge (for example Ridley Hall, Wesley House, Westcott House and Westminster College) that are affiliated with the university through the Cambridge Theological Federation. These colleges, while not officially part of the University of Cambridge, operate programmes that are either validated by or are taught on behalf of either the University or Anglia Ruskin University.[53]

Colleges

Lucy Cavendish also places restrictions on the admission of staff members, only allowing females to become fellows of the college.[7]

No colleges are all-male, although most originally were. Darwin, founded in 1964, was the first mixed college, while in 1972 Churchill, Clare and King's colleges were the first previously all-male colleges to admit women. The last all-male college to become mixed was Magdalene, in 1988.[6]

All 16 of the "old" colleges and 8 of the 15 "new" ones admit both male and female students as both undergraduates and postgraduates, without any age restrictions. Seven colleges restrict entry by sex, or by age of undergraduates, or admit only postgraduates:

Restrictions on entry

The oldest college is Peterhouse, founded in 1284,[3] and the newest is Robinson, founded in 1977.[4] Homerton, which was founded as a teacher training college in the 19th century, attained full college status in 2010.

  • the 16 'old' colleges, founded between 1284 and 1596, and
  • the 15 'new' colleges, founded between 1800 and 1977.

The University of Cambridge has 31 colleges,[2] founded between the 13th and 20th centuries. No colleges were founded between 1596 (Sidney Sussex College) and 1800 (Downing College), which allows the colleges to be distinguished into two groups according to foundation date:

"Old" and "new" colleges

They are self-governed charities in their own right, with their own endowments and possessions. Until the mid-19th century, both Cambridge and Oxford comprised a group of colleges with a small central university administration, rather than universities in the common sense. [2] They also provide funding, accommodation, or both, for some of the senior research posts in the University.[1]
