Welcome to Cambridge!

Congratulations! All your hard work has paid off and we’re delighted to be welcoming you to Cambridge. All students at the University of Cambridge are automatically enrolled as members of Cambridge SU so we thought we'd share a few essential things you should know about us before you arrive. Most importantly, Cambridge SU will support you throughout your degree so whether you’re looking to find student societies, connect with your academic course rep or just looking for a social space to meet new people, we’ll be here for you when and if you need us.

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.
