Cantabrigian

[kan-tuh-brij-ee-uhn]
An Cantabrigian is a member (or former member) of the University of Cambridge, England. The term is derived from Cantabrigia, the Latin form of Cambridge. The term could theoretically also refer to an inhabitant of the city of Cambridge, but is less used in this context.

The matching word for Oxford and its University, often considered a rival with the University of Cambridge, is Oxonian.
