The Elms

Boarding for short stay cohorts

The Elms boarding house

Set in the grounds of St Mary's Senior School, The Elms offers incredible views of the University of Cambridge Botanic and a tranquil, safe home from home. It is currently used for short stay cohorts of students.

  • 45 newly refurbished single bedrooms
  • Modern bathroom facilities
  • A new, state-of-the-art kitchen
  • Laundry facilities
  • Staff accommodation
  • Just a 10-minute walk to Cambridge Rail Station and main shopping areas

The Elms provides the best of both worlds - modern amenities but steeped in history, as it first became home to St Mary's boarders in 1906.

Boarders take advantage of all the on-site facilities such as tennis courts, music rooms and outdoor gym, while also having their own private space and room, in which they can study and relax.
