Society Venues

Societies can often find if difficult to find venues within Cambridge University, particularly as colleges are often very territorial! Most colleges

  • will only book rooms to college members
  • have multiple booking rates depending on who is asking
  • require you to get special permission to serve food and drink in their rooms

Sports societies face similar problems when in comes to using playing fields or specialised courts. In many cases Kelsey Kerridge can be a useful venue:

Information on sports grounds and facilities is available from the CU Sport website.
