Celebrating 250 years of free-thinking education

Cambridge is a fabulous place to be, with eight major arts festivals, a diverse population, some of the most gorgeous buildings in the world, a massive tech sector, and two big universities.

Homerton is proud to be part of this city, and part of the University of Cambridge.

And as something of a newcomer (we became the newest Cambridge College in 2010) 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 – training firstly for the church, then for the classroom, and now for all the world’s great challenges. London then, Cambridge Now: Homerton College stimulates, challenges and excels.

Our 250th year is a year of celebration for us – not just of all things Homerton, but of all things Cambridge – and it is our absolute delight to open our doors to you as part of it.

Fire questions at our experts, play with new medical technology, quiz our students, get stuck in with a hands-on workshop, sit back and enjoy world-class music, or get all dramatic with our actors, directors, and producers. We guarantee you’ll find something that appeals.

Events will be added throughout the year (including in the Cambridge Science Festival and Festival of Ideas), so sign up for updates on our website.

We look forward to meeting you.



We are very proud to be working with our media partners Cambridge Independent and BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.
