Moving away to go to university in a city you’re unfamiliar with is rather daunting, to say the least. I can relate. When I first moved to Cambridge from London as an undergraduate a few years ago I felt quite alienated. From my acknowledgement, I went from living in an extremely multicultural city to living in a city that was not as diverse… I felt like an outsider.
However, since then I can call Cambridge my second home now that I’m familiar with the surroundings. It’s just getting to know where to go. Whether it was the little things like finding products for Afro/Caribbean hair on Regent Street, and having barbers/hairdressers that cater towards my hair type on Norfolk Street, as well as having a plethora of multicultural restaurants to choose from on Mill Road, I can say I felt a little closer to home.
Cambridge City Centre, in particular, has a lot to offer, from punting on the River Cam and exploring the backs of some of the colleges, to clubbing and more. So, although it might be tough settling in at first, rest assured you’ll enjoy your stay when studying!
