As you may have heard, the college is trialling a 25% reduction on continuous accommodation (formally called 38 week rent) this year.

This offers a great deal for those who want to stay in the holidays or just store belongings to make moving in and out easier. If there is a good uptake it is likely that the college will make the reduction permanent.

  • Continuous accommodation allows you to stay in Cambridge for both the 4 week holidays at Christmas and Easter
  • The weekly rent is 25% less than during term time, so in total the cost is the same as 6 weeks worth of rent
  • Unlike vacation residence, you are guaranteed your term time room

If you would like to opt for continuous accommodation, email Wendy Fox at accommodation@cai.cam.ac.uk by Friday 31st October (first day of week 4).

(Note: Harvey Court and the Stephen Hawking Building are not eligible for continuous rent.)

Let me know if you have any questions,
