Why support this campaign?
There is little doubt that this is the greatest opportunity in the College’s history to transform without losing the essence of its notably warm and friendly community.
£27 million more is needed for the Mill Lane redevelopment, but we are buoyed by the Dolbys’ extraordinary support, and encouraged by the long-standing generosity of so many Pembroke people.
The Dolby family has pledged to match 1:1 every £1 received for the buildings fund over the next four years. This provides a wonderful incentive to give, and we hope that many of you will want to seize this opportunity to double the value of your support.

“It feels good to give. What has been special about giving to Pembroke is that I have been able to see at close quarters how my support has helped, and continues to help, the College and its community to maintain the values I remember from my own time, but strive to ensure that it remains among the very best colleges in a great university.”
Lord Smith of Finsbury
Master, Pembroke College
The Importance of Saying Thank You
Reaching our campaign goal is paramount in order for Mill Lane and ongoing academic activities to be realised. Saying ‘thank you’ is just as important. There are number of different way in which the College recognises and acknowledges gifts it has received. All donors, no matter how big or small their gift,
receive a letter acknowledging their generosity and all donors who have given in the latest financial year are invited to the annual May Week Benefactors’ Garden Party. Our The Time and The Place Campaign also affords our supporters with a range of exciting naming opportunities.
Exciting news: Pembroke has officially moved into the first buildings on the Mill Lane site! On 15th February, three departments moved into the building formerly known as Kenmare House, immediately opposite the Porter’s Lodge on Trumpington Street. The Master moved into his new office at 1 Mill Lane just before Easter; he has a fantastic view over the medieval College site.
We are proud to say that the Pembroke crest is now on the Mill Lane site, for good.
