Getting around Cambridge

Welcome Welcome to Cambridge! It’s fantastic to have you with us and we hope your visit is informative and enjoyable. The purpose of the Open Days is to provide the opportunity for you to find out more about the University, our courses and the Colleges, and to talk with staff and students. With so much going on during the Open Days, we suggest you look at the programme of activities in advance or early in the day and make a plan so you can make the most of your visit – to help you with this we’ve left spaces by the session times so you can mark which you want to go to or in what order. Thank you for taking the time to visit us and we hope you have a great day. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask a member of staff or a student (who are wearing turquoise Cambridge Open Days t-shirts).

Got a smartphone? The information in this programme will be available on our mobile site from 1 July, where you can also build an itinerary for your visit and access interactive maps to help you find your way around. www.camexplore.com


A few things to note If you’re accompanying a prospective applicant Please be aware that due to room capacity limits, for the vast majority of sessions priority is given to prospective applicants. If seats are still available, our staff and student helpers will let you know.

Photography Please note that we are photographing the event for publicity purposes. If you do not wish to be in any photographs, please notify a member of staff at one of the Welcome Desks.

There are some dedicated sessions for parents/ carers/supporters, as well as an update for teachers and HE advisers (see p4). You may also like to take a walking tour (details available from the Main Welcome Desk, map location A ) and/or visit one of our museums or the Botanic Garden (see p10).

After the Open Days We hope you’re able to get everything out of your visit that you want and need to. If there’s something you forget to ask, please visit our website (www.study.cam.ac.uk/undergraduate/) or contact a College admissions office (www.study.cam.ac.uk/undergraduate/colleges/) or the Cambridge Admissions Office (admissions@cam.ac.uk).

Visitors with a disability If you have a disability or specific requirement that means you need particular support or facilities during the Open Days, we are happy to help wherever we can. Please contact the Cambridge Admissions Office in advance about arrangements (telephone: 01223 765514; email: cambridgeopendays@admin.cam.ac.uk).

So we can keep improving our events, we’re keen to hear your thoughts on the Open Days. We’ll contact you by email in the next few weeks to ask for your comments and any time you can spare to provide feedback is greatly appreciated.

In case of an emergency In case of an emergency, please contact the nearest member of University staff or contact the Cambridge Admissions Office (01223 333308). In the event of a fire alarm, please vacate the building immediately and follow staff directions. Do not use lifts and remain outside until you are informed by a member of staff that you may re-enter. Commercial organisations Commercial organisations that offer information and advice on our admissions process and interviews may have representatives in Cambridge advertising their services and/or collecting contact details of potential applicants. These organisations are NOT linked to either the University of Cambridge or Oxford, and we DO NOT support or encourage any of these commercial enterprises – none has access to any information that is not already available free of charge from the Cambridge Admissions Office, College admissions offices or Cambridge University Students’ Union. If you are approached by a representative and find their behaviour intrusive, please inform staff at one of the Welcome Desks.

Colleges What’s a College? Cambridge is a ‘collegiate’ university. This means that it comprises various University faculties and departments in different academic subjects, and a number of Colleges. Your College is your base for the time you’re at Cambridge. It’s where you live, eat, do a lot of socialising, receive academic and pastoral support, and where you often (though not always) have your supervisions. Students on the same course, regardless of their College, are taught together by the academic faculties/departments, attending the same lectures, seminars and practicals. There are no Colleges that are ‘better’ for certain subjects.

and Colleges are responsible for, can be found in the Undergraduate Prospectus and on our website (www.cam.ac.uk/choosingacollege/). Visiting Colleges The Colleges are open for visitors to drop in at the times specified below (please check the opening times carefully as access is not possible at any other time) – please follow the signs from the main College entrance (see the map on p12-3 for College locations). Some Colleges have their own events taking place during 3 and 4 July that require separate booking (see individual College websites for details and booking).

Advice on how (and how not) to choose a College, along with an explanation of the key functions that the University (through the faculties/departments)

Getting around Cambridge The University faculties/departments and Colleges are located throughout the city, but Cambridge isn’t a large city and is easy to get around. A map of the city centre can be found on p12-3 and a more detailed map of the University and Colleges is available from the Welcome Desks (map locations A S5 W1 ). Most Open Days venues are within walking distance of the city centre, but some Colleges and departments are a little further out. If you have sufficient time you may like to walk out to these Colleges/departments. Alternatively, you may wish to use one of the bus services (see below).

The last pick-up from Queen’s Road (to West Cambridge) is at 4.00pm, and the last pick-up from the West Cambridge Site (to Queen’s Road) is at 4.45pm. Please note that the West Cambridge Site is approximately 10 minutes’ walk from the Madingley Road Park & Ride site.

Walking tours Four walking tours are available – two around the city centre and two to/from West Cambridge. The tours vary in length (between 30 minutes and two hours) and you can pick these up from the Main Welcome Desk (map location A ) and the West Cambridge Site Welcome Desk (map location W1 ).

City services The Uni 4 and Citi 6 bus services (operated by Stagecoach, www.stagecoachbus.com) link the Colleges/departments with the city centre. Information and timetables are available from the Main Welcome Desk (map location A ).

If it’s a nice day we particularly recommend the walk to West Cambridge (approximately 30 minutes each way), which takes you past the University Library and Faculty of Mathematics, as well as a number of the Colleges. Buses Cambridge Open Days shuttle bus We are providing a free shuttle bus service between Queen’s Road (‘The Backs’) and the West Cambridge Site (JJ Thomson Avenue). There is also a stop near Storey’s Way, for those who wish to visit the Faculty of Mathematics and/or the Colleges in this area (Churchill, Fitzwilliam, Lucy Cavendish, St Edmund’s and Murray Edwards).

The train station is approximately 20 minutes’ walk from the city centre, or buses depart every 10-20 minutes from Emmanuel Street. If you use one of the Park & Ride services, you can catch a bus back from the following city centre bus stops to: Longstanton P&R (Guided Busway) – Parkside (Route A)/Drummer Street Bus Station, Bay 12 (Route B)/Bay 11 (Route C/D) Milton P&R – Drummer Street, stop D2 Newmarket Road P&R – Drummer Street, stop D1 Babraham Road P&R – Emmanuel Street, stop E5 Trumpington P&R – Downing Street, by John Lewis Madingley Road P&R – Drummer Street, stop D2

The buses run between 9.30am and 4.45pm and we suggest you allow around 40 minutes for a journey. There is limited seating on each bus but we anticipate a pick-up/set down from each of the three stops every 10-20 minutes (traffic depending).

Travelling to Cambridge Cambridge is a small and busy city, not built with modern traffic flows in mind, and so it’s best to travel into the city by public transport. By car For those driving to Cambridge, the roads in and around the city centre can get congested and parking is very limited. Therefore, we recommend visitors arriving by car use the Park & Ride services into the city centre. The Park & Ride sites are shown on the map (right). It is anticipated that the Park & Ride sites will be busy on 3 and 4 July (particularly Madingley Road and Trumpington). Therefore, allow plenty of time to travel in case your intended Park & Ride site is full and you have to continue to an alternative Park & Ride site. Buses leave every 10 minutes and the journey normally takes around 15 minutes, but it’s advised to allow at least 30 minutes to travel into the city centre. For more information, including timetables and ticket prices see the website at: www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/parkandride/. Visitors from the north can also use the Guided Busway Park & Ride services into the city centre. Follow the signs for Longstanton Park & Ride from Junction 29 of the A14. For more information, including routes, timetables and ticket prices see the website at: www.thebusway.info. Disabled parking is available on some University sites for the Open Days. Please contact the Cambridge Open Days Team in advance about arrangements (telephone: 01223 765514; email: cambridgeopendays@admin.cam.ac.uk). Disabled parking is also available in the city’s car parks and on some streets. Please check in advance with the Tourist Information Centre (www.visitcambridge.org).
