1,002 students live in this iconic building on the student campus De Uithof. The university, university of applied sciences and numerous facilities, such as a supermarket, sports complex and bars, are on the doorstep. Within fifteen minutes, you can cycle to the centre of Utrecht. The Cambridgelaan is located next to the rural estates of Rhijnauwen and Amelisweerd. You can therefore enjoy the stunning view, have a drink with your housemate in the Cambridgebar or organize a barbecue for your fellow students at one of the built-in barbecue areas.

De Uithof/ Utrecht Science Park
Utrecht Science Park provides a vibrant, dynamic and exciting place to work, to study and to live. There are about 60.000 visitors everyday! The area is in constant development. In 2016-2017 HU University of Applied Sciences has started the construction of a new building next to Bisschoppen/Salamancapad. This year work also started on The Uithof Tram Line. The Uithof Tram Line will serve as the main transport link for Utrecht Science Park. As of 2019, the tram will connect Utrecht Central Station with Utrecht Science Park by means of an 11-minute service. This construction work will cause noise nuisance for people living in the vicinity.

The student complex on the Cambridgelaan looks like a giant gate: it consists of two high rise flats with sixteen floors, which are connected to each other by bridges. Behind this are ten lower buildings with four or five floors. The SSH rents out rooms, furnished rooms and self-contained apartments on the Cambridgelaan.

Short Stay accommodations
At Cambridgelaan, the SSH rents out 150 furnished rooms which have been reserved by Utrecht University and HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht for their international guests. We refer to these as ‘Short Stay accommodations’. The accommodation is furnished. The complete inventory list can be found in the housing offer on our Short Stay booking site, or on your MySSH page.
