The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPdA) and Cambridge University Development and Alumni Relations (CUDAR) are delighted to be able to extend a number of University alumni benefits to postdocs. To qualify, you need to have been in a postdoctoral research position for at least one year. Even if you plan to remain as a postdoc at the University beyond this year, you are still welcome to register for alumni benefits.
 
If you are/were employed by the University, your details will be forwarded on to the OPdA for verification and then on to CUDAR. However, we would strongly encourage you to update your details on either Employee Self Service or by emailing us at to ensure you can start to receive these benefits as soon as possible.

To obtain all of the benefits available to you, please fill out this web form.
 
In due course, you should receive a welcome letter or email from CUDAR and start to receive the alumni e-newsletter and e-CAM, as well as details of how to register for your Cantab.net email. Details of the benefits available to you are listed below. You are able to amend your communication preferences with us at any time.
