CamGuides: Welcome to Cambridge

Finding your way around the city

map of CambridgeCambridge is a vibrant, exciting city, and as a University of Cambridge student you'll never run out of places to explore, visit and study. Although it isn't particularly big, it's worth looking now at where you'll be living, and how close you'll be to your department. It's also worth looking up the location of the nearest supermarket, bike shop, park to relax in, and more.

Exploring the website of the Graduate Union might be helpful, especially their pages and advice on living in Cambridge.

Use Google Maps PROFUSELY!
