"Cambridge's Faculty of Mathematics educates the largest and most able body of undergraduate and graduate students in the United Kingdom. It also houses the highest concentration of internationally acclaimed academics in the world. These are the people at the forefront of mathematical endeavour.

Owing to increasing student numbers and overcrowded facilities, we now urgently need to relocate our mathematicians to a modern site. A space worthy of their international acclaim, which will also enhance and enrich mathematics world wide. This has the highest priority."

Professor Sir Alec Broers
University of Cambridge

The new Centre will comprise:

Together, these will form a concentration of mathematical expertise on one site which will be unequalled for its strength and quality across the whole spectrum of the mathematical sciences anywhere in the world.

The site is also home to the University's new

which is one of the world's major libraries for the physical sciences, technology and mathematics.
