Sidney Sussex College

Our courses are held at Sidney Sussex College (founded in 1596), in the heart of the world-famous University of Cambridge. The main attractions of the ancient city are within a very short walk of the College. Teaching rooms and accommodation for participants is provided in College. Most bedrooms are comfortably-furnished single study-bedrooms with wash-hand basins and tea-making facilities, with shared shower/bath facilities. Single and twin-bedded ensuite rooms are also available, for an extra charge: see application form. Internet access is provided in all bedrooms. Breakfast, dinner, morning coffee and afternoon tea with biscuits are provided for residents. Non-residents are also welcome, and are provided with dinner, coffee and tea. If you wish you can request a daily lunch of sandwiches and fruit.

More information is on the Sidney Sussex College website.

Disabled access

Most parts of the college used for the course are wheelchair-accessible. Please let us know if you need a room near a lift or on the ground floor.


Cambridge is easily reached by air via Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Luton or Cambridge airports. Bus services run from all airports, and train services from Heathrow and Gatwick; the fast train takes about an hour from London (King's Cross or Liverpool Street). Car traffic and parking are severely restricted in Cambridge. Some traffic restrictions are lifted on Sundays. We regret that no parking spaces are available to course members at Sidney Sussex College. Cars may unload at the King Street entrance and then park elsewhere (we will try to arrange parking space for participants in Grange Road). More travel information and course details will be sent to all successful applicants in June. A map of Cambridge may be found at

The university publishes a map of central Cambridge and the University; or see GoogleMaps or


Dinner and breakfast are provided in Sidney's handsome dining hall. Lunch will not be provided by Sidney, but if you wish you can sign up for a sandwich, fruit and drink which will be delivered each morning (see application form: the cost is £20 for each week), or find your own lunch in the nearby shops, market or cafés. NB lunch on 8th August is provided, at or near the concert venue (Baroque course).
