The college was founded in 1326 by the university's Chancellor, Richard de Badew, and named University Hall. Providing maintenance for only two fellows, it soon hit financial hardship. In 1338, the college was refounded as Clare Hall by an endowment from Elizabeth de Clare, a granddaughter of Edward I, which provided for twenty fellows and ten students.

Clare's Old Court, which frames King's College Chapel as the left border of one of the most celebrated architectural vistas in England, was built between 1638 and 1715, with a long interruption for the English Civil War. The period spans the arrival of true classicism into the mainstream of British architecture. Its progress can be traced in the marked differences between the oldest wing to the north, which still has vaulting and other features in the unbroken tradition of English Gothic, and the final southern block, which shows a fully articulated classic style.

Clare Bridge's missing wedge
Clare Bridge's missing wedge

Clare has a much-photographed bridge over the river which has fourteen stone balls decorating it. One of the balls has a missing section. A number of apocryphal stories circulate concerning this - the one most commonly cited by members of college is that the original builder of the bridge was not paid the full amount for his work and so removed the segment to balance the difference in payment. A more likely explanation is that a wedge of stone cemented into the ball as part of a repair job became loose and fell out, presumably still lying on the river bed. The repair work is necessary when a stone ball becomes worn around the metal rod on which it is secured to the bridge; a wedge of stone is removed from the base of the ball (around the rod) in order to free it, it is then turned sideways, a hole is drilled at the new base to receive the rod, and the wedge-shaped gap is filled with a new piece of stone. This can be observed on other balls on the same bridge, where the seam between the main ball and the replacement wedge is visible and tangible, though difficult to spot as a repaired ball is always aligned to have the new wedge facing outwards. The bridge is the oldest of Cambridge's current bridges.

College life

Clare is known as a liberal and progressive college. In 1972 it became one of the three Cambridge colleges that led the way in admitting female undergraduates. Clare continues in this tradition and has won praise for the transparency of its admissions process [2]


Clare is known as one of the most musical colleges in Cambridge. Its choir is internationally recognised and has performed all over the world. Many Clare students play instruments, and the college orchestra (Clare College Music Society (CCMS)) is well known. Clare even allows students to have a piano in their college rooms. Clare holds popular jazz and drum'n'bass nights in its cellars. For other uses, see Jazz (disambiguation). ... Drum and bass (drum n bass, DnB) is an electronic music style. ...


Student paper

Clare's student paper, Clareification, published by the Union of Clare Students won "Best University College Paper" in "The Cambridge Student" in 2005 and is filled with satirical articles mocking Cambridge traditions, reports on silly student antics, and college gossip in the infamous "Clareifornication" column. It is often the subject of criticism by the staff for risqué and tasteless content, and was described by the Master, Professor Badger, as "an unholy cross between the Sun and Private Eye". On February 3, 2007, the college cut its funding to the paper, causing publications to be suspended for a period of a few weeks. This occurred as a result of the outcry following the publication of the February 2 edition, a guest-edited edition which was retitled "Crucification". In addition to the paper's usual satirical attacks on Christianity, this edition also featured several articles which mocked Islam, including a reproduction of the cartoon illustration of the prophet Mohammed. This was the same cartoon which provoked international protest when it first appeared in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten in September 2005. Clareification is the weekly student newspaper of Clare College, Cambridge, a college of Cambridge University. ...

College grace

Oculi omnium in te sperant Domine:
Tu das iis escam eorum in tempore opportuno.
Aperis tu manum tuam:
Et imples omne animal benedictione tua.
Sanctifica nos, quaesumus, Domine, per verbum
et orationem, istisque tuis donis, quae de tua
bonitate sumus accepturi, benedicito
per Christum Dominum nostrum,
Amen

Translated into English, this reads[3]:

The eyes of all wait upon thee, O Lord,
And thou givest them their food in due season.
Thou openest thy hand,
And fillest every living thing with thy blessing.
Sanctify us, we beseech thee, O Lord, by thy
word and our petition; and bless these thy gifts which
of thy bounty we are about to receive,
through Christ our Lord.
Amen

Academic performance

The undergraduates of Clare College have usually performed very well based on the results published in the Tompkins Table,[1]placing Clare within the top ten colleges from 2000 to 2005. The notable exceptions to this have been 2006 where Clare finished in 12th place and of 2007 where Clare slipped to 17th place[2]. Although not an official listing done by the University, the Tompkins Table does offer an unbiased account of how the undergraduates of individual colleges perform in their finals.


Entrance into Clare College is very competitive and can be best seen from the published list [3] of offers given to students and the number of applicants broken down by subject. As an approximate indication, one out of every five applicants is offered a place in Clare, with that varying greatly between the different subjects offered.
