Mr Assange will speak on a topic yet to be revealed followed by a question-and-answer session at the Cambridge Union Society on Tuesday November 27.
The Cambridge Union Society posted news of the members-only event on Facebook.
President Austin Mahler says: "The Union exists to provide a neutral forum for free speech, where members can explore ideas and pose challenging questions to some of the world's most prominent figures.
"Hosting a speaker does not imply endorsement or disapproval on the part of the Society. We invite people to speak at the Union regardless of their ideology or background."
Mr Assange is seeking asylum to avoid extradition to Sweden where he faces allegations of rape and sexual assault.
