Local doctors

The University of Cambridge does not have its own medical practice, and all students should register with a local GP (general practitioner) when they arrive.

Why register with a local doctor (GP or General practitioner)?

Lists of local GPs are available from the Students' Unions' Advice Service and on the NHS Find a GP website. The nearest practice to Fitzwilliam College is at 1 Huntingdon Road. Students may choose to register with any practice, but are advised to find one that is near to where they live.


There are a number of dentist services in Cambridge. If you need to see a dentist, you can use the NHS Choices website to locate the most appropriate one for you.The University of Cambridge issues guidance, information and advice on various medical and health-related matters.
