Student Life at Cambridge
With two universities in the city, students account for about a fifth of Cambridge's population (there are approximately 28,500 students in the city) and are an important part of the community. There's loads to keep you entertained and this makes the city a great place to be student.
'Individually tailored teaching, unrivalled facilities for learning and the world's leading academics are what make Cambridge simply the best university in the world at which to be an undergraduate.
'Just as importantly, our students' talents are visible beyond their studies – in more than 750 student societies, world class sport, debating, music and in everything else that makes the city come alive during term.
'Cambridge students come from all over the UK and from around the world, and from a huge range of backgrounds – all you need is an ability to think for yourself. While you study, CUSU is here to ensure that the student experience is as fulfilling as possible, campaigning in your interests and providing welfare support.'
Rosalyn Old, CUSU President
