Undergraduate Study


Cambridge University Students' Union (CUSU)

Your time at Cambridge isn’t just about academic work – it’s important that you have time out from your studies and get involved in all the opportunities Cambridge has to offer.

CUSU1 represents the interests of all University students and provides a range of central services and support beyond those delivered by the Colleges.

Led by six elected full-time student officers, CUSU:

  • represents the student body on University committees
  • campaigns on important student issues, such as student support, liberation work and education policy
  • supports and connects College student unions through training, forums and advice
  • runs the professionally staffed Students’ Unions’ Advice Service (SUAS)
  • manages the Alternative Prospectus website (which includes the ‘Ask a Student’ facility for each course and College)

College students' unions

Every College also has its own students’ union, to which undergraduates are elected to represent students at a College level. So, if you want to have a say in student affairs, consider running for election!

1Undergraduate Students are automatically members of CUSU; information on opting out of Union membership is available on the Cambridge Students website.
