The University's Accommodation Service can help you find a suitable place to live. Register to enable a full search of their online property database. They have a large selection of University properties and they also have a large database of private properties.  The service advises against taking a private property site-unseen.  It is suggested that where possible you visit ahead of your stay or ask a local contact to view properties on your behalf.

Other information on accommodation can be obtained from property agencies in Cambridge, from noticeboards in the University Centre and the Graduate Union and the Cambridge Evening News property section. The University website has a discussion forum that includes accommodation advertisements. The Cambridge Accommodation Notice Board may also be helpful.
