Student Life at Cambridge

Cambridge is a great place to be a student. We have a great social scene with loads going on within the University and Colleges, plus as students account for about a fifth of Cambridge's overall population (around 28,500 students) there's plenty to keep you entertained in the city too.

'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 700 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 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, offering you relevant professional services and providing welfare support.

‘Students are always welcome to pop into the CUSU offices for a chat with the Sabbatical Officer Team, and to get involved with our thriving volunteer-led part-time Executive.

‘All the very best to you from the CUSU Team.’

Flick Osborn, CUSU President
