The Proctors' and Marshal's Office

Welcome to the Proctors' and Marshal's Office, where you can find the information you need about who we are and what we do.

Two Proctors are nominated by the Colleges every year, and usually serve for one year as Pro-Proctor, followed by one year as Proctor in office, and then a year as Deputy Proctor.

There is also a Additional Pro-Proctor for Ceremonial.

Proctor's Surgery

The Junior Proctor is available for a drop-in session from 2.00-2.30 pm on Wednesdays of Full Term in the Proctors' Office, The Old Schools, or at other times by appointment. Members of the University are welcome to come and consult us about any matter. You can also contact us on junior.proctor@cam.ac.uk first to let us know you are intending to visit.

University Discussions

The Proctors will read contributions to Discussions of the Regent House on behalf of those authorised to participate.  However, contributors are encouraged to attend and present their contribution in person if they can.  Any such contributions need to be received electronically to  no later than 10:00am on the day of the discussion.  The document should include:

  • Their status and department.  e.g. University Lecturer, Dept. of Physics or Bursar, Clare College, for example
  • The topic set for discussion for which this contribution is to be read out
