UG CamGuides: Welcome to Cambridge

Get to know the city for your academic and social life

The city of Cambridge

Cambridge is a vibrant, exciting city, both from an academic and a social perspective. From guest lectures and reading groups through to theatre, beautiful gardens, art galleries, and sports, there is no shortage of things to do.

From a practical perspective, you'll also find Cambridge well-equipped with supermarkets, banks, bike shops, and places to eat, and the train station gives you easy access to London and many other places.

The Freshers Guide to Cambridge from the Student Union has lots of useful information and some key pieces of information about living in the city.
