Founded in London in 1768, Homerton moved to Cambridge just before 1900. Once an academy for the Nonconformist Church, then a renowned teacher-training college, Homerton has been, since 2010, a full College of the University of Cambridge, offering a full range of academic subjects.
As the newest Cambridge College, we get to do things a little differently while still bringing 250 years of our own distinctive history to the task. Our first address, in 1768, was in Homerton High Street in London, and since then we’ve been able to adapt constantly as the needs of our world have changed.
Homerton is one of the most attractive Colleges in Cambridge, with a mixture of old and new buildings set in spacious wooded grounds away from the noisy centre of town. It is also the largest College in terms of student numbers, with a thriving and diverse community.
