If you wish to add "Did you know" facts for rotation within this portal, please note the following:

  • DYKs at this list must have successfully already appeared at Template:Did you know.
  • Add the hooks to a subpage of this portal, such as Portal:University of Cambridge/Did you know/#, replacing the "#" with the number above the current highest. For example, if 20 sets of hooks are in rotation, you would make the number of the page you are creating 21.
  • Hooks should be in groups of three. Aim for variety within the groups of three, and move hooks between the groups if necessary.
  • When a set of three is complete, increase the "max=" number in the DYK section on the main Portal
  • Update this list accordingly.
