Who is eligible for accommodation?
We help locate suitable accommodation within the Cambridge area for members of the University. This includes:
- Current members of the University of Cambridge ie: Full time students (in statu pupilari) or those with confirmed offers, about to join the University within 3 months
- Academics and staff members with contracts of employment above 20 hours per week
- Visiting Scholars with a formal invitation to a Faculty or Department
- Formal current visiting fellows of Colleges
Please note that life members of Colleges who have not obtained formal attachment to a Faculty or Department will be charged an admin fee.
Students attending part time courses connected with the Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) may only access the database at the discretion of the Accommodation Service. Discretion will be based on the length of the course and the weekly hours attended in Cambridge.
We regret that we are unable to assist those teaching or attending Summer schools, or visiting family members, owing to the high demand for short term accommodation for those working in the University. It would be worth looking at our short term listings under 'temporary accommodation' (website front page) as many of these places will offer more than a few nights.
If you are unsure whether or not you are eligible, please contact us and we will let you know.
