Cambridge is working hard to ensure that the full strength of the University’s research powers and resources are used in the global fight against COVID-19.

Colleges underpin Cambridge’s excellence and are the heart and soul of student life. They provide individual pastoral and academic support for each student within a supportive, ready-made community.

The University has six schools, each of which constitutes an administrative grouping of faculties and other institutions. We have over 100 academic departments, faculties and institutes in total.

The University’s collections are a world-class resource for researchers, students and members of the public representing one of the country’s highest concentration of internationally important collections.


With clubs and societies ranging from academic, sporting, religious, musical, political, and artistic there are opportunities for students to develop their skills, meet others and enjoy extracurricular activities no matter their interests.


The University’s general fund is a valuable source of unrestricted funding for the University, allowing the Vice-Chancellor to direct funds to projects that have pressing needs. By making a gift to the University’s general fund, we will be able to direct your gift to where the need is greatest.
