Cambridge students


Bicycles and boats

Two of the most celebrated symbols of Cambridge are bicycles and punts. Two very different forms of transport, but inextricably linked to the symbolism of the town and University.

Motor vehicles

Students are not usually permitted to possess a car in the city. For the full regulations and possible exceptions, you will need to refer to the proctorial notice.

Trains, buses, and airports

Cambridge is very well located for easy access to London, and from there to the rest of the UK, Europe, and the world. Information on trains, buses, and UK airports can be found on the Cambridge City Council website


The University has published information on sustainable ways of getting around the city. Check the Environment and Energy Section’s webpages for advice and tips for cycling in Cambridge and information on the University-subsidised Universal bus service.
