The Trojan Room coffee pot was a coffee machine located next to the so-called Trojan Room, in the old Computer Laboratory of the University of Cambridge, England, which in 1991 provided the inspiration for the world's first webcam.To save people working in the building the disappointment of finding the coffee machine empty after making the trip to the room, a camera was set up, providing a live picture of the coffee pot to all desktop computers on the office network.The opportunites you'll find here, and the support we offer you, can make all the difference to your experience of Cambridge.Members who hold an MA or other Master’s degree or a higher degree from the University, or are qualified for an MA, are welcome to dine in College during Full Term or the period of residence in the Long Vacation.The camera may be turned off periodically for maintenance.
