Newcomers and Visiting Scholars

Due to the current situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak we have to cancel all NVS activities until further notice to avoid meeting up in groups.

There will be no informal meetings in the Grad Café  and all the other group activities will be stopping for the time being.

We will keep the situation under review and communicate regularly with you.


NVS welcome all those who are attached formally to the University of Cambridge, whether here alone or with family. We particularly like to welcome the partners/spouses and children of those who are new to Cambridge.

Each Tuesday morning - in term time - we usually meet in the University Centre in Granta Place. Our meeting room opens at 10.30am for coffee and bookings for events, and the presentation/lecture starts at 11.30am.  To give you an idea of NVS activities the programme is available via the download link below the picture.  Term time runs from  21st April 2020 - 12th June 2020
