Access issues

Technology issues

Library issues

Cambridge Judge Business School is located on the Old Addenbrooke's Site, a ten-minute walk from the city centre. Entrances off Trumpington Street, Tennis Court Road, and Fitzwilliam Street. Peterhouse, Christ's, Downing, Corpus Christi and St Catharine's Colleges are all nearby.


Trumpington Street is very busy with traffic in both directions, particularly at peak times. Pavements are uneven, and there are dangerous open drainage ditches on either side of the street. Few safe crossing places, and dangerous junctions at either end.

Services and shops

City centre. There are a few small shops and restaurants on Trumpington Street.


No car park as such, and parking is very difficult. Call in advance for advice on short-term parking. Drop off is possible at the back of the building, on Tennis Court Road. There are disabled parking bays available for blue badge holders – please call in advance for availability of these.

Other transport options

Uni 4 bus stop on Trumpington Street.

Computer facilities

Some scanners and speaking software available - speak to the IT Team. Other hardware or software could be acquired if necessary.

Large print, braille and audio

Large print information on prior request. Touch readable buttons and audio information in lift.

Library and magnification equipment

Many photocopiers around building for text enlargement.

Signs and wayfinding

Very little external or directional signposting. The building is large, and can be confusing. Small map of each floor outside lifts. Temporary signs are in place for conferences and workshops.


  • Contrasting colours throughout building, as part of the design.
  • Good lighting, with large windows in most areas. Individual desk lights can be provided if necessary.
  • Lecture rooms have large screens and video links.

Induction loops

Induction loops fitted in all three lecture theatres and at the Library desk.


  • Vibrating alarms can be provided. Flashing light fire alarms in lecture theatres.
  • Building is open plan and rather echoey, with a marble floor and harsh furnishings.
  • Individual offices, rooms and lecture theatres are mostly carpeted and fairly quiet.

Arrangements for members with specific learning difficulties are on an individual basis, in conjunction with the Disability Resource Centre. Discuss your needs with the Disability Liaison Officer.
