Fen Court

Designed by Hughes and Bicknell, this modernist building is of significant interest and is grade 2 listed.  Having unsually been built during World War 2, the Bursar at the time had stored the necessary materials on site and utilised builders set for repairs to Cambridge in the event of bombings.  Its distinctive T-shape makes good use of the site and the lantern floods light into the building.  The 15 rooms in Fen Court include a sick bay, guest room, and 2 Fellows’ sets; the remaining 11 student rooms are all en-suite.  Most rooms have lockable storage for students to use in the Christmas and Easter vacations.  There is a coin-operated laundry room in the basement for student use.  Rents fall into bands 9-14.
