Cambridge is a Collegiate University, with many of its functions and responsibilities carried out by autonomous, or semi-autonomous, bodies that work co-dependently in pursuit of its mission and core values.

With its 31 Colleges, 100 plus Faculties and Departments, and a wide range of other institutions, centres and facilities, including libraries, museums and gardens, Cambridge has a diverse and complex structure that has evolved over many centuries. The University is a democratic, self-governing institution and its governance and organizational structures are both distinct and integral to each other.
