Welcome to Sidney Sussex

Founded on St. Valentine's Day in 1596 by legacy of Lady Frances Sidney, Countess of Sussex.

Proud of its past, and ambitious for the future, Sidney Sussex College pursues academic excellence through the ideas and experiences of a scholarly community drawn from across the world and brought together in the heart of Cambridge.

Sidney yet is young; We're growing, and we mean to grow, for Centuries to come!

From 'A Song of Sidney Sussex', E.H. Griffiths, 1900
