Dear Lucy Cavendish College, Cambridge,

Please can you tell me the cost (per week, per term and per annum) of each type of room the college offers to undergraduate students? I am seeking rent prices for the 2013/2014 academic year.

I would also like to know of any compulsory charges for
undergraduates staying in any college accommodation. (e.g. catering expenses, JCR membership etc.)

I would like this information in electronic form. If you require further clarification, please let me know.

Yours faithfully,

David Hutchison

Further to your Freedom of Information request, set out below:

I am responding on behalf of Lucy Cavendish College as follows:

Lucy Cavendish College does not charge a different rate for undergraduates
compared with graduate students, the cost of accommodation depends on the
type of accommodation occupied. A breakdown of the different bands of
accommodation is available at this link

2013-14, below:
