    PORTERS ARE SO FRIENDLY

    Really friendly, has a good reputation of being both sociable and studious. Very good at sports as well. Has a really good comedy night. The JCR is very good and replies to suggestions and queries quickly. Friendliest porters in Cambridge definitely!!! Not stuffy or pretentious, formals have really good food for a decent price and you don't have to wear a gown.

    It is a bit further away from the centre (but only a 10 min cycle and its actually quite nice to be out the busy streets and have peace, quiet and lots of green space.

    College staff has an unnatural fear of fire and are removing kitchen equipment that they believe to be a "fire hazard"

    Very good rooms - old courts have enormous heated window seats and are generally quite large, new (Cowan court) rooms are like a Swedish hotel

    There's always a Vegan and Vegetarian option at every meal and they are usually very good, comparable to meat dishes-- you barely even notice that it is vegan/vegetarian!
