Staff Passes for the University Botanic Garden

As part of the Wellbeing strategy the Department has signed up to become a corporate Member of the University Botanic Garden. We have 12 passes and these will be available for any employee of the Department* to use. It is hoped that staff will use these cards to take time out from their day in a relaxing setting.

The passes will be kept at the Trumpington Street Reception. 6 of the passes will be bookable in advance, the other 6 will be available without booking.  Cards may also be borrowed for the weekend, for example if you have family visiting, and these must also be booked in advance. Advance booking is permitted no more than 1 week in advance – please remember to cancel your booking if it turns out you do not need the card. Booking is by email to

Please note that cards should normally be returned the same day, but may be returned first thing the following morning if a late afternoon visit is planned .  Opening hours for the garden are shown here Lost cards will cost the Department £38 to replace – if you lose a card you will be asked to pay for the replacement.

* 'Employee' of the Department covers academic staff, researchers, academic- related and assistant staff including technicians and porters.  These cards are not for undergraduates who already have free entry nor for post-graduate students who also have free entry if they have the Graduate Union flag on the reverse of their University card.
