Syndicates, Boards and Committees

Syndicates and Boards

Syndicates report directly to the Regent House to ensure the Regent House is properly engaged, involved and accountable in the strategic direction and operational management of the University's academic and other activities.

Many of the non-School institutions​ or University services and facilities are provided and managed by Boards and Syndicates, for example, the admission and progression of graduate students (the Board of Graduate Studies), the organization of exams (Board of Examinations), and student accommodation (the Accommodation Syndicate). Two Syndicates also oversee the operations of the University's main business enterprises: Cambridge University Press and Cambridge Assessment.
