Cambridge Blue is the colour commonly used by sports teams from Cambridge University. There is considerable dispute regarding the exact shade of the colour that should be used. Most notably, the colour used by the Cambridge University Boat Club is different from that used by the Rugby union club. The colour as used by the Rugby club (and generally) is Pantone PMS 324 or PMS 337. The Boat Club colour was created when Alf Twinn added more yellow to this shade, to create a colour that is best matched by NCS S 2020-G.

The Cambridge University official colour style guide defines Cambridge Blue as Pantone 557, with the nearest equivalent web colour being #99CCCC.

The other (less traditional) colours selected for the house style are Pantone 285 (blue), 158 (orange), 369 (green), 513 (purple) and 7466 (cyan). Pantone 032 (red) and 109 (yellow) feature in the official University coat of arms. Fortunately Cambridge Deep Blue (PMS 285) and Oxford Blue (PMS 282) are distinct.
