Eddington (North West Cambridge Development)

Eddington is a new district just to the northwest of the city centre of Cambridge.

It provides modern, affordable homes for University staff - as well as all the services and facilities a community needs. It is within easy reach of the city centre by foot, bike and U bus route which also links Eddington to the train station and biomedical campus on the Addenbrookes Hospital site

Affordable Housing for University and College Staff

The key worker homes at Eddington are available to qualifying staff members of the University, Colleges and affiliated institutions. Apartments are available at discounted, subsidised rents. Two-bed and one-bed flats as well as rooms in four-bed shared houses are all available.

Designed and built to be a neighbourhood – not just a place to live – Eddington includes all that you need to thrive in this new Cambridge community. This includes the University of Cambridge Primary School, Eddington Nursery, shops, supermarket, sports facilities, open spaces, and the Storey’s Field Centre for community events and performing arts. 


Sustainability and transport

Eddington is designed with high sustainability specifications to help support a healthy, active and environmentally conscious community. This includes using renewable and low carbon energy systems, harvesting and reusing rain water and unique waste and recycling collection – as well as providing the infrastructure for public transport, cycling and walking. A personalised travel planning service is available to all residents.

There will also be 1,500 homes for sale on the open market, with the first of those built by Hill Residential.
