Cambridge Judge Business School hails new £32m facility
The new £32 million Simon Sainsbury Centre has opened at Cambridge Judge Business School, providing 5,000 square metres of new lecture, meeting and dining space.
Students and executive education delegates began arriving this month to the four-storey building, designed by Stirling Prize-winning architect Stanton Williams.
It is located on Tennis Court Road just behind Cambridge Judge’s iconic Addenbrooke’s building on Trumpington Street.
The project was supported in part by a generous donation from the Monument Trust, whose founder Simon Sainsbury was also one of the Business School’s original benefactors.
Professor Christoph Loch, Dean of Cambridge Judge Business School, said: “The Simon Sainsbury Centre will transform Cambridge Judge Business School, providing a physical space that fosters collaboration among students, executives, corporate partners, alumni and others, capturing the ethos and spirit of the School.
“The creation of the centre has provided an unparalleled opportunity to re-engage with our global community of alumni and external colleagues, who have been vibrant and active contributors in its creation.
“The new space includes two new lecture theatres, breakout rooms, faculty offices and new dining facilities in order to serve all parts of the Cambridge Judge community including degree students, Executive Education clients, faculty and external partners.
“The new building brings together all parts of our community under one roof while maintaining our position at the heart of the Cambridge Cluster. In doing so, it will enable us to continue solving real-world problems in even more diverse and creative ways.”
