The successor body to the Lodging Houses Syndicate. Members are appointed by the Senior Tutors’ Committee, the Graduate Tutors’ Committee, the Bursars’ Committee, the University and Assistants Joint Board, the Graduate Union, and the Cambridge University Students Union (one each), and by the Council (3 members, one of which must be a research worker employed in an unestablished capacity). The duties of the Syndicate are to keep under review accommodation (other than College accommodation) available to junior members of the university, to university staff of all ranks, and to academical visitors; to maintain a register of such accommodation and to provide an advisory service (the Accommodation Office).
