Open Days

Participating in one of our Open Days is a great way to explore Selwyn and Cambridge, to find out more about our courses, and to meet some of our teachers and current students.

When are the next Open Days?

The College Open Days in 2024 will be held on the following dates:

  • Thursday 4 July;
  • Friday 5 July;
  • Friday 13 September.


Thursday 4 and Friday 5 July 2024 - All Subjects Open Days

Selwyn will be open from 9.30am - 4.30pm for prospective undergraduates to drop in for tours of the College on Thursday 4 and Friday 5 July.

Please come to the College's main entrance on Grange Road to meet us and to pick up a Selwyn Prospectus.  From there, current students will be leading tours of the College, as part of which there will be the opportunity to view some of our student accommodation.

As well as being open for drop in tours, we are pleased to offer an in-person talk for prospective applicants, while at the same time our Senior Tutor and Bursar will offer an in-person talk for parents.  They will both begin at 10am.  There will be the opportunity to ask questions during each of these sessions.  There is no need to book in advance, please just arrive at the College for a 10am start.

Some of our teaching staff will also be running subject talks, and drop in sessions at Selwyn on Thursday 4 and Friday 5 July between 10.30am- 12 noon.  There is no need to book in advance for this.  If you are on site between 10.30am - 12 noon you will be able to speak to the relevant subject Fellows.
A list of the subjects represented on both dates will be made available here in June.

If I can't come to an Open Day, can I visit Selwyn College at another time? 

Yes, of course. If you're in Cambridge at any other time, just come to our Porters' Lodge at the College's main entrance on Grange Road and mention to the Porter on duty that you're thinking of applying to Selwyn. They will have copies of the College prospectus available, and will be able to give you advice on showing yourself around the College grounds.

You can also visit us online through our virtual tour
