You will need to book an appointment to register at Parkside Police Station. Email OVRD@cambs.pnn.police.uk to request an appointment. The Police Station will respond with an allocated appointment time. You should send an email within 7 days of collecting your BRP. There may be a delay in responding to your email but as long as you have sent an email to the Police Station to book an appointment after you arrive in the UK, you do not need to worry about registering within a certain timeframe. You will need to wait until you receive a response to your email with an appointment time.

To register with the police, you will need your passport, Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) and two passport size photographs. There is a charge of £34 which must be paid in cash. You will also need to complete the Registration Form which you should try and complete before registering on the day.

Previously studied in the UK but new to Cambridge

If you have previously studied in the UK but are new to Cambridge you will need to update the police with your new details at Parkside Police Station. You do not need to make an appointment. You need to take your passport, Certificate of Registration and Biometric Card (if applicable).

During your studies

Once you have registered you will need to inform the police of the following changes in your circumstances within 7 days: change of address, change place of study, if you renew your passport, extend your Tier 4 visa, marital status or if any other details on your Police Registration Certificate change. Take your passport, Certificate of Registration and any biometric card to the Police Station. An appointment is not necessary for this.

If you lose your Certificate of Registration or it has been damaged, you should email the Police Station for an appointment for a replacement registration document.
