About the Press

At Cambridge University Press we transform people’s lives through the power of learning and research, unlocking their potential and helping them to learn, grow and to do their best.

We are part of the University of Cambridge

We work closely with other University departments, such as the research and teaching departments and Cambridge Assessment, to advance knowledge, learning and research.

Cambridge University Press is the oldest media business in the world and the oldest university press. We were founded through ‘Letters Patent’, similar to a Royal Charter, granted to the University by Henry VIII in 1534.
