Moving to Cambridge

Congratulations on securing a postdoctoral position in Cambridge. You are coming to a world-leading institution in a great city.

It could be an important step in your career and chapter in your life – and there is a lot of support available to help your move to Cambridge go as smoothly as possible.

Take a look at our Relocation Handbook (coming soon) for comprehensive information covering everything you need to know when moving to Cambridge to take up employment at the University.

OPdA volunteers who recently relocated to Cambridge with their families put this handbook together, drawing on relocation information provided by the University. It is based on their experiences and the information/resources that were useful to them or that they wish they had found sooner. 

The following pages provide details of some of the most important aspects of moving to Cambridge – especially where there is particular assistance for postdocs.

Have a look as well at the Life in Cambridge section of the Accommodation Service website for further information to help you settle into the city.
