Going Out

Cambridge has four main clubs, each of which has an associated night or nights of the week. On most nights of the week one of the four clubs will be pretty packed with students apart from Saturday when it’s full of ’townies’ (the non-student population). Cambridge bouncers will not always accept student ID, so you must bring standard ID (like a drivers’ license or less advisable, a passport). All of the clubs are near the centre meaning only a short walk back home to Memorial Court.

Information on the different clubs in Cambridge will be added soon.

Clare Cellars

Clare Cellars is the student-run College bar. It’s open 7 days a week 19:30-23:30, or until 00:00 on Ents Fridays or Jazz Saturdays.
