The Student Registry formed in February 2012, bringing together three disparate offices – the Degree Committees, 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 Examination Access and Mitigation Committee,and the Postgraduate Committee (PC).

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 10 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 finance transactions, funding and loans work is overseen by the Head of Student Funding, and the Heads of Records and Exams manage 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.
