The University’s central offices work in partnership with Schools, Faculties and Departments, providing core professional and administrative services in support of Cambridge’s academic and charitable mission. They also offer a range of expertise and skills that help support the development and implementation of policy across a number of functional areas.

Cambridge’s central administration has evolved over a number of years. Today, it principally consists of the Unified Administrative Service, which comprises the Academic Division, Estate Management Division, Finance Division, the Health Safety and Regulated Services Division, and the Registrary’s Office. The UAS is led by Acting Registrary Emma Rampton. Other important central offices include Development and Alumni Relations, the Office of External Affairs and Communications, University Information Services, and the Legal Services Office.


The University of Cambridge (informally Cambridge University) is a collegiate public research university in Cambridge, England, often regarded as one of the most prestigious universities in the world. Founded in 1209 and given royal charter status by King Henry III in 1231, Cambridge is the second-oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world’s third-oldest surviving university. The university grew out of an association of scholars who left the University of Oxford after a dispute with the townspeople. The two ancient universities share many common features and are often referred to jointly as “Oxbridge”.
