Freshers’ Fair

Freshers Fair

The University hosts a wide range of Societies and Groups (for more information, see our page on Societies and Clubs). In Freshers Week 2019, as with other years, there will be a University-wide Societies fair held in central Cambridge, and we will have various walking groups throughout to show you the way and answer any questions you might have. This year’s dates are Tuesday 8th October and Wednesday 9th October. Many of you will be matriculating during this period; don’t worry as you will be able to attend the fair at any point in this two-day period.

At the Fair, most of the university-wide clubs and societies will be present to encourage you to sign up; you can browse the most up-to-date list of official societies here. Many Societies will throw in gifts and freebies as an incentive for signing up, and you’re likely to find a host of promotions and offers there, too, as well as the Cambridge Freshers Fair staple: a mountain of Domino’s vouchers for you to use throughout the year.


Before you do anything else, make sure to chow down on some corporate lukewarm pizza.
