Hello and welcome! Congratulations on being admitted to Caius. We’re looking forward to meeting you in a few weeks’ time — in the meanwhile, we’ll try to do our best to help you hit the ground running when you arrive.

To that end, in the pages here you’ll find various pieces of information that will hopefully give you a better sense of what life will be like when you arrive at Caius, and links to other pages on this site and elsewhere that will help orient you.  In addition to what you find on this page, the “Gonville & Caius Graduate Freshers” Facebook Group is a great place to meet other new Caians, ask current grads any questions you might have in the meantime, and receive daily updates about events during Freshers’ Fortnight itself (NB: the group is created every year circa September and deleted in November).

The Freshers Reps should also circulate a Freshers Handbook to you before you arrive in Cambridge, which includes all of the following information and more.

For anything about Caius, Cambridge, or Freshers Fortnight, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Freshers Reps directly via their committee email. Alternatively, you can dig through the College intranet (The Venn) and its Freshers web page.

Our Constitution was last (heavily) amended on the 20th of May 2022 at an Open Meeting of the MCR, Chaired by the then-President. This version of the Constitution is the only valid one, and can be found here: MCR Constitution
