The University is a confederation of Schools, Faculties, Departments and Colleges. The Colleges are governed by their own statutes and regulations, but are integral to the make-up of the University of Cambridge.


The University of Cambridge has a central senior administrative team, responsible for the management of the University. Academic, research and support staff work throughout the University and Colleges; they are crucial to the University’s success and reputation.

The University is governed through central bodies, principally the Regent House, the Council and the General Board of the Faculties. These bodies include representatives from across the University.

The University Reporter is the official journal of the University, publishing a comprehensive record of University business. It includes Graces, Reports, Notices and Discussions, which constitute the main processes by which the University is governed.
