New accommodation court at Churchill College

Posted: 25th April 2016 Tags: Churchill College

If you’re a regular visitor to the Møller Centre you will have noticed an impressive new Cambridge landmark emerging from the other side of the Churchill College cricket pitch. The landmark Cowan Court – named in honour of alumnus and Benefactor Fellow, Michael Cowan – will provide on-campus accommodation for 68 Churchill students, including three rooms specifically designed for disabled students.

The new court will enable all Churchill undergraduates to be housed on-site and is expected to be completed by July 2016. The design of the new building reflects the College’s environmental strategy, minimising the carbon footprint and energy use of the building throughout its life.

The project is now in the final stages of its build with the beautiful recycled timber cladding now up and work on installation of rooms and services such as bathrooms and kitchens well under way. The light and spacious rooms all feature en-suite bathrooms and large windows in keeping with the original College court architecture, allowing for a fantastic accommodation and study environment.

The Cowan Court building project forms part of the College’s 50th Anniversary fundraising appeal, which has so far raised more than £5.3 million towards the cost of this project.

As a wholly owned subsidiary of Churchill College, the Møller Centre continues the College’s mission to build bridges between academe and business and all of our profits are covenanted back to support the College. Find out more about the Møller Centre and Churchill College.
