The Backs

St John’s unites the best traditions with the best innovations, offering a unique community where students can unlock their potential and be better than the rest.

All undergraduate students at Cambridge University belong to one of the 31 Colleges. Each student also studies a particular University Tripos. Choosing the right Tripos is as important as choosing the right College.

St John’s College is a beautiful and inspiring place to live and study. A series of courts dating from the sixteenth century to the twentieth, it spans the river Cam and opens onto both the tranquil Backs and the bustling city centre, bringing a unique set of benefits to its students.
