Alumni and current students are helping new students prepare for Cambridge this summer

Around the world in August and September, Alumni Groups will be hosting pre-arrival 'Freshers' Events' for new undergraduate and postgraduate students coming to Cambridge this autumn.

These optional events are a great opportunity for new students to prepare for university and make some friends before they arrive. Newcomers will meet current students and alumni, from whom they can get tips and advice for living and studying at Cambridge.

Read testimonials from last year's event attendees.

How you can help

Alumni Groups

Over 50 Alumni Groups will be hosting a Freshers' Event this summer. If your Group is interested in hosting an event, please email for details.

Current students

We are keen to hear from current students interested in attending one of this year’s Freshers' Events to welcome attendees, share your experiences of living and studying in Cambridge and answer their questions. This is great opportunity to make a direct and considerable difference towards helping incoming students prepare for university, and to widen your networks with students and alumni.

Events are currently being registered and those requiring volunteers will be listed below throughout July, August and September.

Please register your interest in this volunteer opportunity now, by emailing
