The 2023 Varsity Matches


Oxford and Cambridge Universities will play their annual Varsity Rugby Matches at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 25 March 2023. The Women's Match begins at 12pm, and the Men's Match begins at 3pm, with tickets granting access to the stadium from 11am. Follow this link to access the booking form. 

"Cambridge is a place where we all place a great deal of focus on academics - the Varsity Matches are a great opportunity to show our support for the wide University community, and to champion the Cambridge that exists outside of the classroom. If you were a sportsperson, being at Twickenham will invoke that same sense of pride it did when you pulled on the Robinson or University jersey for the first time. If you weren't, what better way to stay connected to the city we were all so lucky to call home for a little while?

In the last few years, Robinson has brought Varsity Match trophies back to the red brick palace: Hetta Friend and I (both matriculated 2018) have won Varsity Matches at Twickenham. This year, Hetta will be back out on the hallowed turf, while the new Senior Tutor, Scott Annett, will be pulling strings from the technical area as Director of Rugby. There'll be Robinson representation throughout HQ - make sure you're there too!"

Premium seats on the halfway line are available for both matches for Robinson alumni, with access to the Varsity Gathering in the Rose Room. The Room Room has its own bar and food vendors nearby so you can catch-up informally with other alumni over a drink between and after the matches. Tickets are £40 for adults and £20 for children (under 18s). There is also the option for young alumni (graduating since 2020) to sit with current students.  If you're interested in this, please email
