Before You Arrive

Make sure you have met all of your conditions and start looking for accommodation, in college if possible or at least close by. (Although some prefer to be closer to their department or faculty.) Also, start checking your University of Cambridge email address and make sure you’re in our Eddie’s Facebook group! If you know you’ll be interested in joining a certain club or society or playing a certain sport, send a little email to the relevant person. And if you are interested in getting involved with CR life, feel free to contact any of the CR officers.



Freshers’ Week can be extremely overwhelming for anyone, all the more so if you are an introvert. Jumping into a community of hundreds of people while getting used to a new city, a new country, and even an entirely new way of organising a university can be a bit much to say the very least.
