CamIntAc utilises the excellent teaching and residential facilities of the University of Cambridge, including Clare College and the Centre for Mathematical Sciences. This gives students a first-hand experience of what it is like to be a Cambridge student.
We contract with Clare College and faculties of the University for the use of facilities but otherwise have no connection or association with Clare College or the University of Cambridge.
Clare College is one of the 31 colleges of the University of Cambridge. It was founded in 1326, the second oldest college of the University. The College is located by the River Cam, situated behind the Senate House (administrative centre of the University) which is next to King’s College.
“The residential accommodation is clean, safe and secure and, during term time, it is used by full-time students attending degree courses at Clare College. The premises are maintained to a high standard by the University of Cambridge.”

FOOD & ACCOMMODATION AT CLARE COLLEGE
Students are accommodated at Clare College in standard en-suite twin rooms. Boys and girls are housed in different buildings with separate staircases supervised by at least one member of staff. A 10pm curfew is strictly enforced so students may not leave their bedrooms after this hour.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served at Clare College’s self-service style student cafeteria. Meals are the typical food a Cambridge student will be served. Breakfast is a hot English Breakfast. Lunch and dinner have a main course, dessert, fruit and squash or water.
During the Outdoor Adventure and Teambuilding weekend, students will spend one night in simple accommodation with beds and sleeping bags (provided by CamIntAc). There are also shower facilities. The outdoor adventure centre provides a hot meal for dinner and sandwiches with fruit and drink for lunch (typical British lunch).
During other overnight outings, students are accommodated at a 3 or 4-star hotel, usually Holiday Inn, in standard en-suite twin rooms. Breakfast and dinner are served at the hotel, with lunch being taken at a restaurant near the events /activities of the day. Students will generally have lunch in the cafeteria of the universities they are visiting.
