Welcome from the Dean
We are delighted that you are considering joining us at Darwin. As the oldest and largest of Cambridge’s postgraduate Colleges, with around 800 current members from 80 different countries, Darwin is a wonderful place to further your studies.
The first Cambridge College to admit both men and women, Darwin has always dared to be different. In the centre of the city, our peaceful riverside gardens, award-winning study centre, student-run bar and excellent food provide an ideal home for your time at Cambridge. Since our foundation nearly 60 years ago, we have formed an international, interdisciplinary and informal community of scholars and researchers, where everyone is made welcome.
Part of the role of a College is to provide the individual support that a large institution like a university may not always be able to offer. We take this seriously at Darwin, with College Tutors, Deanery staff and a Head of Wellbeing committed to your welfare.
Any College is shaped by its members. At Darwin we are fortunate that those members continue to take us in exciting new directions, while maintaining the elements that have made us distinctive since 1964. Why not come and help us shape the next chapter?
Dr Duncan Needham
Dean & Senior Tutor
