The University of Cambridge is the second-oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world's fourth-oldest surviving university. Founded in 1209 and granted a royal charter by King Henry III in 1231, the University has preserved its reputation as one of the best institutions of education in the world. Cambridge is formed from 31 constituent colleges each of which has its own unique history, architecture, customs and traditions. The colleges compete with each other not just in terms of academics but also in athletics. Virtually all students and alumni tend to wear their college colors with pride and thus most colleges enjoy a healthy rivalry with all the other colleges. While the Tompkins table provides a good measure of undergraduate student performance and endowment figures give some indication of the quality of the facilities available, opinion about which college provides the best overall experience vary quite significantly. Here is a list of all 31 colleges of Cambridge with brief descriptions about their history and alumni. Rank these colleges to let us know which ones you think are the best! Source(s): Wikipedia

Peterhouse is a constituent college of the University of Cambridge, England. It is the oldest college of the university, having been founded in 1284 by Hugo de Balsham, Bishop of Ely, and granted its charter by King Edward I. Today, Peterhouse has 226 undergraduates, 86 full-time graduate students and 45 fellows. The modern name of Peterhouse does not include the word "college". Peterhouse is one of the wealthiest colleges in Cambridge, with assets exceeding £250 million, including property in central London such as the Albany apartment complex in Piccadilly. Peterhouse is one of the few colleges that still seeks to insist that its members attend communal dinners, known as "Hall". Hall takes place in two sittings, with the second known as "Formal Hall", which consists of a three-course candlelit meal and which must be attended wearing gowns. At Formal Hall, the students rise as the fellows proceed in, a gong is rung, and two Latin graces are read. Academic performance tends to vary from year to year due to its very small student population; for example, Peterhouse came 25th in the Tompkins Table in 2007 but 7th in 2010, 12th in 2014 and 6th in 2015 (out of 29 colleges). The college has five Nobel laureates associated with it, either as former students or fellows: Sir John Kendrew, Sir Aaron Klug, Archer Martin, Max Perutz, and Michael Levitt.
