    Thank you for your interest in hosting a Freshers' Event, which we hope will be an enjoyable and beneficial experience for your Group. Incoming students attending these events are incredibly grateful for the warm welcome, information and support they receive from Group members as they begin their transition to Cambridge.

    Organisers are supported every step of the way by the University’s Alumni Engagement team. Please get in touch if we can be of assistance.

    We politely ask organisers to respond promptly to our enquiries, observe the Freshers' Event guidelines and submit your attendee registration form to us within two weeks of your event. Thank you.
