The College acknowledges that May Balls are an aspect of Cambridge student life, and that an annual May Ball may be held in College.
A May Ball may only take place where there is a functioning May Ball Committee, and it is their responsibility to plan the Ball carefully and to ensure it is conducted in accordance with all relevant legal obligations, especially as to compliance and Health & Safety legislation as outlined in the College May Ball and June events documentation.
Preparations on site may commence up to 3 days before the Ball; the site must be substantially tidy within 36 hours after the Ball, and as far as possible be returned to its previous state within 3 days.
Residents in College will not be required to vacate their accommodation during the Ball, but must be aware that there will be considerable disruption especially during the Ball itself. Residents with children may wish to be away during that period at their own cost.
