About The University of Cambridge...

The University of Cambridge is one of the world’s oldest and most successful Universities, with an outstanding reputation for academic achievement and research. It is consistently ranked among the foremost Universities in the world. The University comprises more than 150 departments, faculties, schools and other Institutions, plus a central administration and 31 independent and autonomous Colleges.

The University’s sustained pursuit of academic excellence is built on a long history of first-class teaching and research within a distinct collegiate system. Its principal goal is to remain one of the world’s leading Universities in an increasingly competitive and global higher education sector. Today, the university is at the centre of a cluster of over 4,300 businesses employing 58,000 people.


The University is deeply embedded in, and committed to serving, the local community. A new residential development in north-west Cambridge, Eddington, is being built on former farming land and is designed to provide highly sustainable affordable living for the 21st century. This exciting programme is now progressing to the next phase of development, which is likely to commence in 2021, and, under current plans, will ultimately comprise 3,000 dwellings, 2,000 student bed spaces, shops, a school and nursery, a community centre and performing arts venue, a hotel, an energy centre and 100,000sqm of commercial and academic buildings.

The Estates Division...

The Estates Division is a multi-disciplinary team of professionals responsible for the development, management and maintenance of the University’s estate and the provision of a variety of related services. The Estates Division employs over 320 people and maintains approximately 360 university facilities and a significant commercial estate. The non-residential portfolio (buildings used for teaching, research and administrative activities) is currently valued at £2.7bn and its broad and complex nature presents many demanding challenges. Some buildings are over 800 years old and Grade I listed buildings protected by English Heritage, whilst others are new, highly sustainable state-of-the-art facilities. The capital construction programme – estimated at £4bn – provides a rich mix of projects that utilise best practice methods of planning, design, and construction.


Over the next five years estate development will include a number of major academic research facilities, Phase 2 of the Eddington housing community, commercial and retail investment properties, and the University’s solar farm.
