Clare College

college of the University of Cambridge

Clare College is a constituent college of the University of Cambridge in Cambridge, England. The college was founded in 1326 as University Hall, making it the second-oldest surviving college of the University after Peterhouse. It was refounded in 1338 as Clare Hall by an endowment from Elizabeth de Clare, and took on its current name in 1856. Clare is famous for its chapel choir and for its gardens on "The Backs" (the back of the colleges that overlook the River Cam). The current Master is barrister Anthony Grabiner, Baron Grabiner. Clare is consistently one of the most popular Cambridge colleges amongst prospective applicants.
