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 (booking opens in the spring). 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, 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 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 applying. The Admissions Office is open from 9.00am - 5.00pm (except weekends).

Can I stay at Clare for the Open Days?

We have a limited number of rooms available in Memorial Court (our first year accommodation site, very close to our Open Day base) on the night of 4 July for school groups travelling to Cambridge for the Open Days. 

Please note our accommodation for the July Open Days is now fully booked.
