Do I need to register to visit Clare?

If you would like to visit Clare during the Open Days, please register for the main University Open Days here. There is no additional registration needed to visit Clare beyond this. All sessions are offered on a drop-in basis.

Travelling to Clare College

We are located in the city centre, very close to other central colleges, and many prospective students drop by for an hour or two as part of their day in Cambridge.

Parking in Cambridge is very expensive (in the region of £30 per day) and will be extremely busy on the Open Days. We suggest that you consider the city's excellent Park-and-Ride service which will save you time and parking charges. The Park-and-Ride costs a total of £3 per vehicle for the day and takes you directly into the city centre. Cambridge can also be easily reached via rail and coach.

What if I can't make it to an Open Day?

Don't worry if you are unable to attend the Open Days. We know that this is not always possible.

You are very welcome to visit the College at any time. If you tell the Porters that you are a prospective student they will point you in the direction of the Admissions Office should you want further information about Admissions. The Admissions Office is open from 9.00am - 5.00pm (except weekends). You are very welcome to look around the College, but we regret we are unable to arrange conducted tours or meetings with Admissions Tutors.

It is very important to emphasise that candidates who have not visited the College are not in any way disadvantaged in the admissions process.

Can I stay at Clare for the Open Days?

Yes! We have a limited number of rooms available in Memorial Court (our first year accommodation site, very close to our Open Day base) for school groups and individuals travelling to Cambridge for the Open Days.
