Different people need different facilities. This is one of the treadmills in the King's Vaults gym.
It is not unusual to make a successful application without ever having set foot in Cambridge. Don't worry if it is not practical for you to visit as there is no requirement to do so.
Since we welcome applicants who live a long way from Cambridge, we do our best to ensure that all the infomation that you need to make a strong application is on our website (see the relevant subject page and how to apply in particular), as well as virtual tours and the life and facilities sections so that you can get a sense of King's as a place:
- The grounds of King's - 360 degree tour
(click on 'Navigate' in the top left corner to explore other parts)
- King's College Library - 360 degree tour
- King's College Chapel - 360 degree tour
- Life at King's (music, sport, societies, food etc)
We also have a dedicated page for if you don't feel very well supported for your application, and the student perspectives are particularly useful (if you read five or six of these, you'll have a very good sense of what studying at King's is like).
The University has made some films which you may also find useful:
