Description of Local Area

Tripos Court is a modern complex of eight purpose-built student residences in a newly developed area of Cambridge. It is set opposite a large leisure park which includes restaurants, bars, supermarket, music/theatre venue, leisure facilities, amenities and transport links all in close proximity.
This campus-style accommodation is a secure gated site with an upbeat international atmosphere making it ideally suited for students.

Description of Accommodation

The light and airy residence has been recently refurbished and consists of 300 en-suite bedrooms, with 6 residents sharing a contemporary fully equipped communal kitchen.
Bedrooms are all single ensuite and include plenty of storage options, including under bed storage, wardrobe, bookcase, bedside cabinet and shelving. There is a designated space for studying with a desk and chair. Bedding, linen, towels, toilet rolls and coat hangers are all included in the room. Residents are able to control the heating and temperature within their own room too.
Tripos Court is arranged in clusters, with 6 en-suite bedrooms sharing a large fully equipped communal kitchen. A key benefit of this layout is the opportunity to cook, eat and socialize with other residents in this multi-functional space. Kitchens are fully equipped with breakfast bar stools, sofa and beanbags, and everything you need to prepare your meals. All cooking utensils are provided, including all crockery, cleaning materials as well as ironing board and iron.
