Jesus College is a constituent college of the University of Cambridge, England. The College's full name is The College of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Saint John the Evangelist and the glorious Virgin Saint Radegund, near Cambridge. Its common name comes from the name of its Chapel, Jesus Chapel.

The college was established between 1496 and 1516, on the site of the twelfth-century Benedictine nunnery of St Mary and St Radegund by John Alcock, then Bishop of Ely. The cockerel is a symbol of Jesus College, after the surname of its founder, Alcock.

The College is also known for its grounds, which are unlike those of Cambridge’s other old colleges, being much more spacious. Set back from Jesus Lane, all the courts are open on at least one side (with the exception of the Cloister). The main entrance to the College is a walled passage, called the "Chimney" (derived from the Middle French 'chemin', for 'path' or 'way').

Ian White, van Eck Professor of Engineering in the University, has been Master of Jesus since 2011. He was preceded by Robert Mair.

Jesus College has assets of approximately £243m[2] making it Cambridge’s third wealthiest college and one of the richest per head.
