We’re in…!

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.
