Ducks at Emmanuel College by Sir Cam

The CAMCard enables you to enter the Colleges*, free of charge, when they are open to the general public, with up to three guests (one at St John's and Queens'). This includes King's College Chapel with up to two guests – please see the Chapel's website for opening hours and information about services.

Please note, to prevent the wider spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, all Colleges are currently closed to non-essential visitors.

Due to ongoing building works access to Clare College is restricted to alumni of Clare only. Gonville and Caius is currently undergoing a refurbishment project; there may be occasions until October 2020 where access cannot be permitted due to health and safety reasons.

To plan your visit and find entrance information, please see each College's own website. Alternatively, you can view a full list of the Colleges, including their websites and contact details.

If you are interested in visiting a particular College's grounds, you may wish to contact the College directly in advance of your visit to avoid possible disappointment, especially during exam term (the final term of the academic year). Please see current and forthcoming term dates for further information.

If you are planning a trip to Girton College and you will have more than four in your group, please contact to check if there any restrictions.
