Is Peterhouse the full name? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.254.171.194 (talkcontribs)
Yes. It has also been called St Peter's College, but Peterhouse is the full name. NOT Peterhouse College. Ever. Budgiekiller 17:48, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

But Cambridge colleges also have a long fancy Latin name. For example, St. Catherine College is officially called "Collegium sive aula D. Catharinæ in Universitate Cantabrigiensi". Don't know what is the Latin full name for Peterhouse.

Domus Sancti Petri. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Epimetheus Rex (talkcontribs) 22:19, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Article Status[edit]

Would be good to push this one up to at least GA status. There's more than enough information around to do that! --Mrh30 13:44, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Hey Mel, it's Nick from year above. I agree it would be nice to improve the article - it will need a lot of referencing as a first step, though. At some point when I've got the time I'll dig out my history of Peterhouse and see what I can do. Greycap 16:57, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Peterhouse Annual Record seems to be a good source of all things random about the College as well! --Mrh30 18:43, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Ghost[edit]

I'm really shocked to see this crap added to the article. Unbelievable! 201.29.178.246 19:15, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

History[edit]

I'm thinking that quite a lot of the information in the following link deserves to be added to this article http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=66643 - anyone got any opinions? Can we lift wholesale and credit, or will rewriting be necessary? Mrh30 (talk) 14:02, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Structure of article[edit]

I think it would be sensible to look at whether some of the sections are really noteworthy. For example Student Life is not particularly, and dining societies seems to be of limited value. I think the lists of alumni and fellows should perhaps be moved entirely from here and replaced by prose highlighting some of the most notable people. Mrh30 (talk) 12:10, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

broken links in the refs[edit]

I met several broken links in the refences to the section Buildings and grounds--Schnellbehalter (talk) 10:50, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
