Cambridge brings together the most brilliant minds and allows them the space to freely interact, learn and discover. This is how we change the world and our volunteers play an instrumental role in helping achieve this.

Volunteering for Cambridge provides the opportunity to meet some extraordinary people and develop new skills, whilst gaining a unique insight into one of the most globally renowned universities. You can have a big influence on the lives of our current and prospective students. 

"Volunteers are ambassadors and advocates that promote the mission and core values of the University" Professor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz Vice-Chancellor.
