"That infidel place!"

Girton College, University of Cambridge

Girton College is a constitutent college of the University of Cambridge: but for those who study here, it’s home. With a history starting at the very beginning of the modern feminist movement, Girton College has a reputation for progressive action, being the first place to offer residential higher education for women.

Since our beginning in 1869, Girton has maintained a reputation for academic achievement, alongside widening access to higher education.
