Sidney has a college team for most sports, which are generally really chilled - you can turn up on the day and play, and it’ll be a good laugh!

Everything you are about to read has been written by current and recently graduated students at the University of Cambridge, to give you honest information about what it’s like to be a student at Cambridge.

Sidney Sussex is the ‘newest of the old’ colleges, being founded in 1596, and is relatively small compared to the others.

Second and third year rooms are assigned by a ballot system, which is random and reversed for the following year.

For me, this meant my room in second year was pretty small (although still near my friends - we lived in a house down the road from college) as I was near the bottom of the ballot, but my room in third year is really nice - I have a set with a ‘living room’ and bedroom that are mine - and great for having friends round!

The Male and Female Welfare officers coordinate socials, such as an acoustic night or free chocolate in the bar, and can discretely help with other issues.

They work in conjunction with the LGBT Officer, the Disabled Students’ Officer and the Women’s Officer.

However we hardly ever have many tourists wandering around, it’s definitely a hidden treasure slap bang in the middle of Cambridge!

The gardens are beautiful but the front of college is fairly unassuming so we can hide away from all the hustle and bustle!

When I first arrived at college, I was made to feel welcome right from the start.

You could tell that it’s a really great community, which I think is made a lot by the fact that almost everyone lives on site, and there’s only around 100 people in a year.

It’s relatively cheap compared to the other colleges, and there’s always a vegetarian option.
