Welcome to Cambridge!

Cambridge SU exists to fight for, advocate and represent the interests and needs of all students at Cambridge University. All students are automatically a member, and all members drive what we do. So no matter your level of study, background or the marginalisation you may experience, Cambridge SU is a union that fights for you. As we head into the new academic year, we know that students may be anxious about what the University experience will be like in the face of Covid-19 and we'll be working hard to offer clarity and support in these unique and challenging times.

We’re a registered charity who are independent from the University of Cambridge (although we do work in close partnership with them). Led by a team of eight elected Sabbatical Officers, we campaign on matters affecting Cambridge students; from workload to welfare, access to equality and much more! Cambridge SU will keep in touch with you throughout your University journey to share projects you might like to get involved with, news from the University committees our team sits on and other important updates that may affect you as a current student.

As your Students' Union, we aim to equip all new students with the answers they need and confidence to support their arrival in the city. Here you'll find top tips from current students, information about upcoming freshers' events and more! 

Discover the freshers' fair

Your 2021 Freshers’ Fair will be taking place on Tuesday 5th and Wednesday 6th October 2021 at Parker’s Piece. With a range of societies, brands and university departments to chat to, there is something for everyone at the Cambridge SU Freshers’ Fair. You’ll be able to discover student groups and register with societies, as well as pick up some great freebies and discounts from brands you know and love. For anyone not able to attend our in-person fair, we will also have our Freshers’ Fair site to access online with the same great societies to discover. Find out more about the event by visiting our Freshers’ Fair page on the SU website!
