In 2014, the redevelopment of St Clement’s Gardens on Thompson’s Lane began. The terraced houses were in a bad state of repair and inadequate for the needs of today’s students. WYNG Gardens was built in its place, providing 72 ensuite rooms and modern facilities.
The building has been made possible by a generous donation from the WYNG Foundation. Dr Anthony Ng, a trustee of the Foundation said: “By supporting WYNG Gardens, we hope future generations of students will find a comfortable environment at Cambridge to acquire the knowledge to explore and benefit the world.”
This donation is part of the WYNG Foundation’s wider commitment to the College and the University. Previously it has enabled the creation of new Fellowships and postgraduate studentships in the Centre for Law, Medicine and Life Sciences at the University, in partnership with the Hatton Trust and Hong Kong University.
