Your stay at the University of Cambridge
There are 31 different colleges at Cambridge University, each offering accommodation to students. Undergraduate students are required to stay in university accommodation during their first academic year. The option to stay is also available to second and third year students, and the majority choose to do so.
The academic year at Cambridge University is divided into three terms and three periods of vacation. During vacation, some colleges ask students to vacate their rooms so that scholars and visitors to the university can stay.
At the very end of the academic year, all students are required to leave their rooms. Certain colleges provide some student storage, but for those who prefer to bring their belongings home, there’s My Baggage!
My Baggage is the No.1 Student Shipping company for students at the University of Cambridge. We provide an efficient and safe luggage shipping service for hundreds of Cambridge University students every term. We’re experts at this sort of thing, so you can trust us with your belongings.
How does My Baggage work?
All you have to do is book online, then we will send you some labels to print and attach to your luggage. After that, we’ll collect your item and deliver it to where it needs to go. We provide full online tracking and offer email and text notifications to update you with the whereabouts of your item each step of the way.
Where is my luggage collected?
If you need your luggage collected from home, we’ll pick it up straight from your front door. And if you need luggage collected from your university accommodation, please ask your college where the luggage drop off point is. Every college at Cambridge has a Porter’s Lodge or luggage room where luggage must be left. This is because drivers are not permitted to collect luggage from students’ individual rooms for security reasons.
Where is my luggage delivered?
Again, if your luggage is being delivered to your home, we’ll bring it straight to your front door. If it is being delivered to your university accommodation, it will be left in your college’s Porter’s Lodge, postal room or luggage drop off point.
Sending a bicycle to Cambridge
In Cambridge you’ll notice that a very large number of people choose to travel by bicycle, as it’s a more efficient mode of transport in this little city.
Students are able to ship bicycles with My Baggage, however they must be boxed up. If you require assistance with this, we recommend bringing your bicycle to a local cycle shop, where they will disassemble it and package it for a small fee. You can find more information on sending a bicycle on our Support page.
