Our planet faces new and daunting challenges. Our ideas and insights are needed to solve them. Now we need the world’s support.

Support our community


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.


A new, major interdisciplinary initiative focused on the transition to a zero-carbon future, bringing together the best of Cambridge in people, research and knowledge exchange.

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 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.


Participation in sport and other clubs and societies enriches students' lives, fosters important skills, and contributes to the overall experience, helping to ensure students can truly thrive during and beyond their time at the University of Cambridge.


From music to drama and dance — the performing arts have a long history at Cambridge and play an important role in enriching the lives of students and the wider University community.


Help us reach, support and fund the students with the greatest potential we can find, from all parts of the UK and the world.


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.
