• Graduation ceremony

As an alumnus/a, you have first-hand experience of the life-changing impact that a world-class education and outstanding learning environment can have. Volunteering can be very rewarding, offering a great opportunity to share your knowledge and skills with the Cambridge community.

We have over 450 alumni groups, which is the widest network with the biggest global reach of any University. Cambridge would not be able to operate on such a global scale without the help of you and your fellow volunteers.

Professor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, Vice-Chancellor of the University

Alumni volunteers are passionate about contributing to the continued success of the University and lives of its current and future students. They join us at different stages of their careers, and from a variety of different sectors but welcome the chance to meet new people and tell their story.

For more information about volunteering, or if you have any questions, please email: volunteers@alumni.cam.ac.uk.
