Welcome To Pembroke


Congratulations on having your uni place confirmed, and welcome to Pembroke. I’m Milly and I’m the President of the Junior Parlour Committee (usually known as the JPC). We are a committee of students who have been elected to represent Pembroke’s students and organise events. At this time of year, our main focus is welcoming a new cohort of freshers to the Pembroke community. We are planning lots of ways to make your arrival special, even if it will be different than previous years. It is totally normal to feel nervous, but the JPC are busy planning lots of ways to help you settle in to life in Cambridge. We will be in touch with more details in the weeks before you arrive, but until then, make sure you celebrate your success and enjoy the rest of the summer.


Before Coming To Pembroke

First make sure you've read everything college have sent you and responded where required. A list of college's communication to undergraduate offer holders can be found on the Pembroke website here.

Pack! Packing for university, particularly the first time, can be difficult. But luckily the Student Union, in its previous guise as CUSU, compiled a list of common items that you will probably want to bring and another of things you won't need. They can be found here.

Follow our social media and check out the rest of this website for more info. The sports and society contacts are up to date but some will change at the start of term so it is probably best to wait until after freshers' week to message them.

If you have any questions or concerns about costs and finances then read the information on the college website here and we have compiled some links here.

Pembroke JPC on Social Media

Our main social media are linked below. These are definitely worth a follow for a convenient way to keep up with JPC ents and announcements. But we know not everyone is on social media and we send important messages and a weekly newsletter by email. There are also many other pages and groups associated with Pembroke and the JPC that are worth a follow such as the Pembroke Welfare Facebook page.

Official Pembroke JP is the Facebook group run by the JPC. Here you'll find events and updates from the JPC and Pembroke's societies.

Pembroke Exchange is a buy and sell group for Pembroke students. It's a great place to sell formal tickets you no longer need, find some second hand stuff at the start of the year, or borrow an air mattress.

pembroke.jpc is our new Instagram. Check out the takeovers to see what life is like as a Pembroke student.
