Huntingdonshire Regional College is a further education college located in the Huntingdonshire district of Cambridgeshire, England. The college is based in the town of Huntingdon.

Huntingdonshire Regional College offers a range of qualifications including GCSEs, A Levels, apprenticeships, BTECs, diplomas and access courses. Study subjects include art and design, business, computing, computer gaming, fashion, construction, photography, sport, public services and hair and beauty.

The college also offers a range of professional career courses including Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT), Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and CISCO. In addition, the college offers some higher education courses in conjunction with Anglia Ruskin University and programmes of study for LLDD students. Specialist courses are run for adults with learning difficulties or disabilities.

The college invested over £7 million into the refurbishment of the main California Road campus which was completed in 2012.[1] The development included a new reception, refectory area, additional social spaces, new student services and new admissions facilities. The college has also invested in teaching classrooms and workshops.

Huntingdonshire Regional College offers a range of services to the public, including a hair and beauty salon, a print room, a plant centre and a nursery.

Following a Ofsted grade of inadequate in October 2016, the governors decided to remove the college's senior management team. The governors decided that the college should merge with Cambridge Regional College and so the senior team from Cambridge Regional College took over the running of the college. The merger between the two colleges is currently in public consultation.[2] If approved the merger is scheduled for 1 August 2017.
