For staff


The Regent House, the University's governing body, has given formal approval for the first phase of the North West Cambridge development.

Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Institutional Affairs Jeremy Sanders welcomed the decision. “The North West Cambridge development is a major part of the University’s long-term future, providing much of the residential and research accommodation that the University needs as it grows over the next 20 years.

“The endorsement of phase one by the Regent House illustrates the positive commitment that members from across the University and Colleges have towards the continuing success of Cambridge and the wider region.”

Phase one of the development includes approximately 530 homes for qualifying University and College staff, 450 homes for sale, accommodation for 300 students, a local centre with community facilities, and substantial landscaping and public space, which will enhance connections to and within the local area.

Phase one is estimated to cost £281 million, with the scheme in its entirety costing £1 billion. Work will start later in 2013 with the first buildings due for completion in late 2015.
