Overview of postgraduate accommodation

St Catharine's postgraduate accommodation is all within easy reach of Cambridge city centre and the College's main site on Trumpington Street. All our residences are served well by local amenities, and are particularly convenient for either the University Library and Sidgwick Site or the Downing Site and Judge Business School.
