Society venues

 

Societies can often find it difficult to find venues within Cambridge University, particularly as colleges are often very territorial! Most colleges

  • will only book rooms to college members
  • have multiple booking rates depending on who is asking
  • require you to get special permission to serve food and drink in their rooms

Sports societies face similar problems when it comes to using playing fields or specialised courts and our Student Activities Coordinator is happy to help you navigate these scenarios and make venue suggestions based on your requirements.

Information on sports grounds and facilities is available from the CU Sport website.

Access statements for venues & events

To ensure your events are inclusive, it is best practice to add an access statement to your event listings. You can use the Disabled Students' Campaign access statement generator (https://www.disabled.cusu.cam.ac.uk/resources/access-statements) to quickly help you with this task.
