Welcome to Cavendish Halls!
So you're living in Cavendish Halls are you, you lucky scamps?!
Here's some need-to-know info about your new home...
What do you need to bring?
You can find a handy list of what we provide and what we recommend you bring here.
It's important to note that there are induction hobs at Cavendish Halls so remember to buy pots and pans suitable for an induction hob - otherwise, they won't work, there'll be no soup and we'll all be sad.
How do I get there?
You can find travel directions here.
Where can I do my laundry?
You will find card-operated machines and dryers on the third floor. Cards cost £2 and can be topped up online or at a machine.
Do I have a cleaner?
A cleaner will come to tidy the communal areas once a week (but be aware they will not clean if the surfaces are messy, so try and keep things clutter free!) and you're in charge of keeping your bedroom clean. Good luck, friend. You can do it. We believe in you.
Where do I pick up my post?
You can collect your post from your post box located in Cavendish Hall entrance. Large parcels will need to be collected from Cambridge North reception.
