Coming on an Open Day is a great way to see Selwyn and Cambridge, to find out what the courses are really like and also meet some of the people who might be teaching you, as well as some current students.

When are the next Open Days?

Our next Open Days will be held in 2020.  Details will appear here from February 2020.

Tours of College – Friday 20 September 2019

Selwyn will be open from 1.00pm to 4.00pm for prospective undergraduates to drop in for tours of the College – no booking is required (please visit the University website to discover which other Colleges will be open on the same day)

The Open Days and events above are for students who are considering an application to Cambridge in October 2019 for entry in October 2020 or deferred entry in October 2021.

Is accommodation available?

Some accommodation is available for people attending the Cambridge Open Days in July and our September Open Day.  Priority is given to those in our link areas who cannot travel to Cambridge and back home in the same day.  Accommodation requests should be made via email to the Admissions Officer on  We will confirm availability and other details as quickly as possible.

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

Yes, of course.  If you tell the Porters at the main entrance on Grange Road that you are a possible candidate for admission they will let you in. They will have copies of our Prospectus available.
