Keeping Term by Residence

In order to fulfil University requirements for graduation, undergraduates must be in residence for three-quarters of each term. You are expected to reside in Cambridge during the whole of Full Term, since regular teaching and lecturing take place then.

If you come into residence later than the beginning of Full Term, or are absent from Cambridge for a few nights during the term, you must remain in residence for an equal number of nights after the end of Full Term in order that the term may be counted.
