A world-class University at the heart of a world-class City

“The University of Cambridge’s mission is to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning, and research at the highest international levels of excellence.

“The University’s Strategic Framework for the Estate supports the mission by seeking to ensure that the estate adds value to the performance of Cambridge as a world class teaching and research University.  By providing the right environment, built space and facilities, we can help the University to continue to attract and retain the best staff and brightest students, deliver positive experiences as members of University and civic communities, and achieve the institution’s goals for knowledge and learning.

“As a leading employer and presence in the Greater Cambridge region, the University recognises its responsibility to the community as well as its own staff and students. It is therefore a key partner with local authorities in the City Deal that will deliver improvements in transport infrastructure and housing.

“The University’s new site developments will exemplify our mission to remain a major contributor to Cambridge’s history, culture and landscape.”
