Scholars House

CCSS scholars house front
Scholars House is a purpose-built boarding house located in one of the most cosmopolitan areas of central Cambridge. Surrounded by a mix of independent and quirky shops, cafés and restaurants, Scholars House is a short walk from the railway station and one of the most famous open spaces in the city, Parkers Piece, with its nearby Parkside Pool and Kelsey Kerridge Leisure Centre.

Scholars House has a modern twist on the classic Cambridge University layout of a peaceful central court providing an attractive outlook for student rooms. As with University of Cambridge accommodation, once inside the building, the bustle of city life is replaced by the calm of academic study and a peaceful, enjoyable environment.

Scholars is the largest of the CCSS boarding Houses with 60, mainly single, ensuite rooms. These are divided into single sex units.

The individual ensuite study-bedrooms, contemporary and purposeful, are typical of the better standards of Cambridge student accommodation. Excellent communal facilities, high levels of staffing and the popular location of Scholars, makes this a particularly sought-after residence for our older students.

Scholars House has several comfortable common rooms, with TVs and snack-making facilities. All meals are provided at our Kirby’s restaurant, just across the road, by our expert catering staff.
