A welcome from the CUGS President…

Welcome to the Cambridge University Geographical Society! We are the student-run society for students at the University of Cambridge. Geography is a discipline that enables us to delve into the intricate relationships between humans and their environment making it ever so important today.
At CUGS, we endeavour to host distinguished speakers from diverse fields and industries relating to Geography as well as enrich students’ welfare through social events and activities.
I hope to welcome you at one of our forthcoming CUGS events!

Ina Bi, President


We put on a number of events and socials during the year for all our members, including the Christmas Dinner, Garden Party and various speaker events. Make sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram to keep updated with all of our events!


Compass is the student run magazine produced in partnership with CUGS.
Compass covers a broad range of contemporary issues, with articles produced by our own geographers, alongside hosting readers’ photography and career advice.


Geography students who are members of CUGS are eligible to apply for the Bedford Travel Grant which is available to support undergraduates with their dissertation.


Do get in touch if you would be interested in partnering with us! We’re always keen to work alongside companies and groups, and we can offer a range of specifically tailored sponsorship packages.
