Cambridge is a great, world-leading university.
The University of Cambridge’s global reputation for excellence is underpinned by a vibrant community of students, researchers, administrators and support staff. Creating an environment that meets their professional needs and bolsters their aspirations is essential to attracting and retaining the most talented individuals and their families. This is what the North West Cambridge Development seeks to achieve.
The North West Cambridge Development is the most significant capital project in the University’s history. It is also its most ambitious effort to strengthen our sense of community by providing affordable housing, communal facilities, parklands, commercial space and transport links for the University and the city.
At the heart of the North West Cambridge Development is Eddington. Built in close collaboration with local authorities, residents and the wider community, Eddington is a model for new large-scale housing developments designed to enhance a city’s infrastructure. Open to the public as well as to members of the University, Cambridge’s newest district already offers occupants, neighbours and visitors a template for inclusive and sustainable living.
We hope that you will be inspired by our vision for the North West Cambridge Development, and that you will take some time to find out more about it.
