Student Registry

The Student Registry formed in February 2012, bringing together three disparate offices – the Board of Graduate Studies, the Board of Examinations and Student Administration and Records – to one location. In December 2013, we had our first Head of Student Registry. This appointment brought fees and funding into the organisation.

Our role is to provide collegiate staff administrative support involving for example, student records, fees, examinations and assessment, loans and some funding. We also support the following committees: Applications Committee, Board of Examinations, and the Board of Graduate Studies (BGS).

Whilst our work is student centred, we recognise that most is done alongside or for staff across the collegiate University and for external bodies (e.g. research councils, North American government departments). Consequently, these web pages are intended to support collegiate staff. Information for students is contained within Cambridge students.

Our work is organised around 9 work streams and the following map shows the breadth of work undertaken and the specialist leads who are your first point of contact for the work stream. We then have a dedicated team of administrative staff who ensure delivery of the work.

The fees, finance transactions, funding and loans work is overseen by the Head of Fees and Funding, the Head of Graduate Student Administration leads on graduates and the Head of Records and Exams manages the remaining streams, that is, compliance, exams and assessment, front office services and records.

We are open from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm, Monday to Friday and we welcome visitors during these hours. Our last appointment time for students to speak to a staff member in person is 4.30pm.



The Student Registry will be closed from 4pm on Thursday 24th December 2015 and will reopen at 9am on Monday 4th January 2016. During this period it will not be possible to for students to submit their thesis in person. Theses can be posted through the large letterbox to the right of the door of the Student Registry offices at 4 Mill Lane. Any theses posted through the letterbox before 9am on 4th January 2016 will be considered to have been submitted on the 24th December 2015, as the last working day.
