We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Cambridge on 4 or 5 July 2024.

While you’re here, you’ll be able to visit our undergraduate subject departments, Colleges and facilities to see for yourself what studying at Cambridge is like. Staff and student ambassadors across the university will be on-hand to help if you have any questions.

What's on? Description
General support Visit information stands and chat with staff from a range of useful support and facilities teams.
College sessions Tour the Colleges with current students and staff and get a real insight into College life.
Subject sessions

Visit departments, attend talks and chat to staff and current students to find out more about your subject area of choice.

Please note:

  • The programme is subject to change.
  • If talks get full we may ask anyone accompanying prospective students to remain outside, so we can prioritise prospective students attending the talk.
  • General or central topics will be covered in our Warm-up Webinars which take place in the lead up to the Open Day, rather than on the day.

Planning your day

The University of Cambridge is spread across lots of buildings in the city - there are 29 undergraduate Colleges alone!

There’s plenty to explore, so we recommend you plan to visit 6 to 10 places during the day.

All Colleges are open for tours, with many offering other sessions too.

Check the programme above for full details and locations, to help schedule your day. 


With so much on offer, below is our suggested to-do list for your Open Day:

  • Attend a subject talk
  • Take a College tour
  • Chat to our student ambassadors
  • Get your admissions questions answered in the Student Services Centre
  • Explore the city (if you have time left!)
