You are here

Join us!

CUHWC is open to everybody in Cambridge, regardless of whether or not you’re a member of the University. New members are welcome at any time of the year. To find out more about who we are, what we do and whether we’re what you’re looking for, see the club introduction and FAQs, or browse the rest of the site.

At the start of the academic year in October, you can also find out more by coming along to the University’s Societies’ Fair and/or the club Squash (an informal presentation followed by refreshments). Details of these will appear in the calendar a few weeks in advance.

If you’re already convinced, see below for how to join!

Mailing list and Facebook Group

You can join the mailing list to receive information about trips and other events, with no obligation to become a member. This list is low volume: normally around 2 emails per week during term time. To sign up, go to this page, or email the mailing list managers asking to be added.

We also have a Facebook group with a higher volume of posts about trips, equipment, destinations, socials etc. (No need to become a member to join!).


You will need to become a member to come on any of our trips (except for the Freshers’ Day Trip in October). This year the membership is £20 and it includes BMC affiliation along with BMC insurance. You can join either in advance or at the same time as signing up for a trip. However, you don’t need to be a member to come to our regular social events – the Wednesday pub meets are a great place to start if you’d like to meet people and have a chat about our trips before committing. Find us at the Castle, from 8:30pm
