Cambridge URNU was established in 1994 and is based at Town Headquarters (THQ) in a large building just outside the centre of Cambridge and is the shore based hub of the unit, with ship's office, galley, classrooms, gun-room and wardroom and a bar for relaxing and socialising after an evening of classroom instruction. Shore-based training is centred here on Thursday evenings during term time with drill-nights, after which we retire as a unit to the bar.

THQ is located at 2 Chaucer Road, and we share the building with Cambridge University Air Squadron, the RAF equivalent of the URNU.
