What to pack
We recommend that you pack as lightly as possible! You'll need to transport your luggage from the airport to your room in Cambridge and back, and unfortunately elevators are scarce both in London's public transport system and in Cambridge.
We're sure you'll buy additional items and souvenirs during your time in Cambridge, so leave room in your luggage to take them back!
- Comfortable walking shoes
- A waterproof jacket
- A light jacket
- A smart outfit for Formal Hall, such as:
- A suit (or at least a shirt and tie)
- A cocktail dress
- Something suitable for a formal occasion
- Sportswear (if you want to take part in any sports activities)
Make copies of your passport, travel insurance and flight details and keep them safe and separate form the originals. If you have government approved photo ID, bring this and use it while in the UK instead of your passport.
Any electronic devices you bring with you will need to comply with UK health and safety regulations. We'll Portable Appliance Test (PAT) anything you bring with you early in the programme and if your device doesn't meet these regulations, we will remove it from your room and return it at the end of the programme.
If you're using devices from outside of the UK, you'll also need to bring a travel adaptor with you.
