Joining The Union

 Join Cambridge's largest student society today for the opportunity to see world-class speakers and debaters as well as many other member benefits - it costs just £160 (£180 out of discount period) for Life Membership, which works out at less than £2.50 per week, over the course of a three-year degree.

The Union has a huge amount to offer, so make sure you don't miss out -- all current and former students and staff of the University of Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin University are eligible to join. There are three types of membership available to buy:

Life Membership offers all membership rights during your time in Cambridge and beyond graduation.

Annual Membership offers all membership rights for one year from the date of joining.

Access/Bursary Membership To purchase Access/Bursary Membership, sign up as an access member and bring evidence from Student Finance England that your household income has been accessed at £25, 000 or below (thus eligible for the bursary outlined above). If you cannot provide this on collection of your card, you will be given an annual membership card, which can be upgraded to access life membership for a processing fee of £5 when you present evidence at a later stage. If you have any questions or would like to see a template letter please email our officers at
