Student handbooks and other useful information can be found here.
Other resources available to students include the College’s official documents (found in the Governance area of our website) which detail college rules and regulations. This includes policies and rules which relate students.
To make a booking for Formal Halls, sports facilities, music rooms or a rehearsal space, or meeting rooms, visit our Booking Links page.
The Accommodation Handbook contains important information, including about vacation residence. All students must read this.
Please note that if your room has a small double bed, it is recommended that you use a double bed sized duvet and sheets.
Formal Hall dinners offer the opportunity to have a change from the regular College dinners but they also offer the chance to talk with and meet fellow College members in a slightly more formal, but still relaxed, environment.
Formal Halls are on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays starting at 7.30pm and consist of a three-course served meal with coffee. Wine is not provided. Students are allowed to bring one bottle of wine between two people to Formal Halls. This rule is strictly enforced and the Hospitality Managers will confiscate any excess alcohol. High Table will dine with the students in the hall on Formal Hall nights.
To attend these events, please sign up no later than 24 hours on Monday to Friday and 48 hours on Sunday in advance via the Formal Hall booking system. Once signed in you will be charged unless you cancel within the cancelation deadline.
University exams for undergraduates usually take place during Easter Term (April to June each year).
All Cambridge undergraduate courses are assessed through examinations in broad subject areas called Triposes. Each Tripos is divided into one or more Parts and you need to complete a number of Parts in one or more Triposes to qualify for the B.A. degree. Some subjects have preliminary exams which do not count towards an Honours Degree but will indicate your progress. Tripos exams do count towards your Honours Degree.
You must make your exam entries yourself through CamSIS (University of Cambridge online Student Information System), once instructed by email to do so by the Tutorial Office. Exam enrolments need to be done by you and your Director of Studies (DoS) by the first Tuesday in November. Changes can be processed until you verify your exam entry in the Lent Term. If you wish to change your choice of papers after you have enrolled then you must speak to your DoS immediately.
The University has prepared a detailed student guide for enrolling and verifying your exams on CamSIS, and information about what to expect:
