The CAMCard is issued free to all alumni who have matriculated and studied at Cambridge, instantly identifying you as a member of the University.

What is the CAMCard?

The CAMCard is your official alumni card; with it, you and up to three guests can visit Colleges open to visitors without paying an entrance fee. Please note that fewer guests are permitted at Clare, King's and St John's (two guests with the CAMCard holder) and Queens' (one guest only). See College access for more detailed information.

As well as automatic membership to the University Centre, the CAMCard gives you a range of other benefits - explore the map and the topics below to find out more.

What does the CAMCard look like?

The CAMCard had a makeover in June 2015 but don't worry if you have a previous design, you don't need to get a new one. Your old CAMCard is still valid and, whichever design your card has, it will continue provide you with all the usual benefits and discounts.
