About Us

International postgraduate students newly arriving to live in the UK for the first time often experience problems adjusting to a strange culture and language; it can be lonely and difficult being separated from family and friends back home. Link House is a local Christian response to the needs of these students, who will return home to their respective countries to take up professions within government, universities, industry or commerce.  We welcome those of all faiths and none, and aim to build bridges of understanding between these key people by providing comfortable, affordable accommodation and support in three houses on the same site within easy walking distance of the Cambridge city centre.

Each house is supervised by helpful, approachable wardens. Since opening our doors in 1988 more than 800 students from over a hundred countries have passed through the Link House doors. Many have kept in touch with each other and with the Trust long after leaving.

The Trust is administered by a board of Trustees, and supported practically, financially and in prayer by local Christians
