Cambridge University Library


Virtual Open Days at the University of Cambridge run between 5-18 July 2021, and offer lots of opportunities to discover how our libraries support students.  

The July Virtual Open Days are aimed at prospective applicants in Year 12 (or equivalent) and prospective mature applicants (aged 21 or over), together with any parents or supporters. Attendees have the opportunity to explore our University and Colleges virtually and get an insight into what it is like to be a student at the University of Cambridge.
