Fitzwilliam is a modern college of the University of Cambridge, located amongst a cluster of such colleges to the North-West of the city. Within modern buildings, the large college comprises approximately 450 undergraduates, 200 graduates, and 60 fellows. Whilst the main entrance is now located to the south of the college, in Storeys Way; the most familiar facade is probably the plainer north, which faces directly onto Huntingdon Road.

Fitzwilliam House was founded in 1869, in a building opposite the Fitzwilliam museum, and was founded for those wishing to study in Cambridge but without sufficient funds for college membership. In 1966, Fitzwilliam became a college, and moved to its present location.
