About Us

Gonville & Caius, founded in 1348 and counting over 1000 academics and students, is one of the oldest and largest colleges of the University of Cambridge. The College welcomes applicants of all backgrounds to join a community of almost 300 postgraduate students, based in the beautiful College Old Courts in the heart of Cambridge. The MCR (‘Middle Combination Room’) is the Cambridge name for the postgraduate community, or Students’ Union, of the college. We organise several events every week, including a weekly Port Night, which is one of our most popular events and a great occasion to catch up with other Caians after Formal. Most of us live in the Caius Graduate hub, ‘the Village’, around Harvey Road, where we also have a shared common room and barbecue area.
