Our city — Our Cambridge

Welcome to our Cambridge - the unseen side of the city.

Our Cambridge video

Reality Checkpoint has endured for half a century because it reveals a significant truth about Cambridge: there is another reality, a less well-known Cambridge, and ARU is proud to be at its centre.

Our side of Reality Checkpoint is Mill Road and Romsey Town - vibrant, alternative, accepting. Home to independent shops and microbreweries and Europe’s first Eco mosque, with cafés and food shops covering all world cuisines and budgets, it inspires community and creativity, what is new and what is next.

Thank you to all the students who collaborated with us to create this film:
