University Arms Cambridge, re-created in 2018 by architect John Simpson and interior designer Martin Brudnizki, offers 192 rooms and suites across four floors, with views over Parker’s Piece, historic Regent Street, and the hotel’s inner courtyard. The architecture and interiors are undeniably British and grounded in the Edwardian era – that exciting first decade of the 20th century where modernity began to tease tradition. At University Arms, this duality is manifested in spacious rooms full of natural light and a décor that features bespoke, leather-padded writing desks, low ottomans and tiered chandeliers in playful colours. The result is ambitious, beautiful and full of life.

Offering large sitting areas, replete with unmatched views of Parker’s Piece, our Suites are named after Cambridge-affiliated authors and alumni and are individually curated around their namesakes.


Superior rooms impress with their proportions and presentation. The Edwardian-inspired interior is complemented by rich and vibrant furnishings that offset the room’s spaciousness, creating an inviting warmth.


With an Edwardian-designed influence throughout, the Classic room comes with a king-size or twin bed option, a writing desk and armchair for those letter-writing or reflective moments.


Cosy by name but grand in style, these double-bedded rooms feature an Edwardian design offset by warm, colourful, contemporary decoration.


From here comes illumination and the imbibing of sacred knowledge

Our Book Butler will handpick a selection of books from our beautifully designed Heywood Hill curated library, to be hand-delivered to your room on a silver platter.

Delightful classics available in all our rooms...
