Cambridge SU hosts an annual Freshers' Fair event to showcase everything Cambridge has to offer to both new and returning students. We will be hosting the 2021 Freshers’ Fair on Tuesday 5th and Wednesday 6th October on Parker’s Piece. This event will be taking place in-person, following government guidelines on large-scale events. 



Covid-19 Regulations

Cambridge SU are carefully monitoring the rules and regulations surrounding Covid-19. We will be adhering to government guidelines, and would like to reassure our students that their safety is our utmost priority. We have made the decision to introduce our own guidelines for this event, and we currently intend to require mask-wearing for all inside the marquee and to provide access to the tent through (free) ticketing to students to control numbers. These requirements are subject to change based on the rates of COVID transmission, but we want to ensure that these expectations are clear with you and that we act responsibly regarding student health. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the fair and Covid-19, please contact
