Your comprehensive guide to starting your studies at St John's
Welcome from the VP
Welcome to John's! Many of the freshers activities are organised by the JCR Vice President, and
they would like to extend to you a welcome from all of us.
What to Bring
At uni, you'll need stuff. Clothes, pens, guacamole. We've produced a page to guide you on what
you should bring.
Your First Day
No one knows what to expect on their first day at University. Except you. Right now. Click here
to find out more.
At some point, some sort of bank or student finance form will ask you where you'll be living in
College. You may even like to contact someone yourself.
Glossary of Terms
Some countries have different languages to us. Cambridge has its own too... We've made a
glossary to help you out with Cambridge slang..
Though you should be able to find everything you need here, we may have missed something! Go
here to have a look at the College's main site.
