How do I update my contact details?

Please fill in the update your details form. We will then update your record and notify your College.

Where does my data come from?

The Development and Alumni Relations office looks after the University's alumni database.

We keep in touch with all University alumni, provide services to them and maintain relationships with potential and existing donors. Colleges also have alumni databases and the University and the Colleges co-ordinate their approaches.

The University updates its database with information provided primarily from alumni themselves, but also from Colleges and from Cambridge in America (the University's affiliate office in the USA).
