With one of the most diverse graduate student bodies of the country, it would be hard not be find something of interest to you in Cambridge. Graduate-only events are organised by the Graduate Union, College MCRs and a couple of societies which particularly target graduate students.

The Graduate Union maintains an online calendar of GU events.


College MCRs

Many colleges run events which are open to grads from across the university. These are advertised on their web pages. The bar at Darwin is a favourite on Friday evenings. All Colleges and MCRs have an ents programme, typically including exchange Halls with other Colleges, bops, and video nights.

Colleges and their music societies often host concerts, particularly of classical music. These are often advertised in college event calendars and the websites of their music societies or chapels (where many concerts are held), and on posters around town.

Student Societies

Many clubs and societies put on events on a regular basis. See under 'Societies and Sports Clubs' for how to find ones of interest.
