Welcome to Link House Trust

Coronavirus Update: Link House will be remaining open and supporting international students who have been unable to return home or who have chosen to stay in Cambridge. We have introduced stricter hygiene and safety measures to safeguard all residents in our community during this period.

If any international students in Cambridge are experiencing difficulties with accommodation while the universities are closed, please contact us by email and we may be able to help if we have rooms available.

Link House Trust has been providing a link of hospitality, friendship and support to international post-graduate students for 30 years. It serves as a residential and social community, and a 'home-away-from-home', to help students connect to their new environment.

The Trust has three houses in total: a large Victorian terraced house and two smaller purpose-built houses, the last of which was completed in May 2010. In total, these properties have rooms to accommodate up to thirty residents.

Since opening our doors in 1988 more than 800 residents from almost 100 countries have enjoyed the experience of living at Link House.
