Founded in 1942, the Cambridge University Astronomical Society (CUAS) prides itself on many years of continuous and active existence. We are a group of students and members of the university from many different backgrounds who share an interest in all topics related to astronomy. We hold many different events including talks (2 or free to members) from eminent astronomers, observation nights, observation demonstrations (members only), socials and much more.

Please explore the website to find out more of the exciting astronomy activities possible in Cambridge - especially the unlimited access CUAS members can get to the historic telescopes (Observing). We are always keen to share our passion in astronomy with others, no matter your background in astronomy. Please come along to some of our open events or talk to the friendly committee if you are considering joining.
