Newcomers and Visiting Scholars

Newcomers and Visiting Scholars (NVS) welcomes all those who are new to the University of Cambridge, as well as their families.

Postdocs arrive in Cambridge from all over the world, and many of them have partners and families with them. While postdocs are settling into their new working life, supported by colleagues, it can be a lonely and bewildering time for their families. NVS is here to help!

NVS, which is run entirely by volunteers, organises a huge range of outings, talks and group activities including:

  • English conversation and cultural discussion groups
  • Knitting and crafts
  • Cinema trips
  • Walking tours around the local area
  • Coach trips
  • Children’s groups
  • Yoga

They also have a programme of Tuesday morning talks & tours, which runs during term time.

NVS has offices with the Accommodation Service at Kellet Lodge and with the OPdA at Mill Lane.

Find out more about the group and their programme of activities on their website.
