Key Worker Accommodation

Eddington is a new district located 2km northwest of the city centre of Cambridge, between Madingley Road and Huntingdon Road.

Eddington is being created to meet the University's long term growth. Designed to be a long lasting, sustainable and ambitious place, the long term masterplan includes 1,500 homes for University and College staff.

The first phase of accommodation became available from August 2017, and consists mainly of furnished 1- and 2-bedroom apartments.

Postdocs employed by the University, Colleges, and Partner Institutes can apply to rent these apartments. Priority on the waiting list will be given to new members of staff, particularly those coming from overseas.

You can find information about these homes and how to apply to rent them on the Accommodation Service website.

Detailed information about eligibility criteria, the application process, and terms & conditions of the rental are provided in their Frequently Asked Questions section.

If you have further questions, you can contact Ruth Mann, Area Housing Manager, on NWCResidences@admin.cam.ac.uk.
