The University of Cambridge Graduate Union was the official graduate students' union at the University of Cambridge, England.[1] Until 2020, it responsible for supporting graduate students and advocating issues at the University of Cambridge via University committees and beyond.[2] In November 2019, students voted by referendum to dissolve both the Graduate Union and Cambridge University Students' Union to form one student union, Cambridge SU.[3] The Union dissolved in July 2020.[4]

The University of Cambridge Graduate Union was the first students' union in Britain catering mostly to graduates.[citation needed] It published an annual Handbook with useful information on adjusting to life as a Cambridge graduate student, an online 'Alternative Prospectus' of the University of Cambridge (mostly for new members arriving in Michaelmas Term) and a weekly bulletin circulated to members throughout the year.[citation needed]
