Location

The DRC is located in the ground floor of Keynes House, which is adjacent to the Judge Business School and part of Old Addenbrooke's Site. Enter the site from Trumpington Street, opposite the courtyard entrance of the Fitzwilliam Museum and locate Keynes House to your left, alongside the car park of the Judge Business School. There is rather a lot of traffic in the area, and pavements are poor.

Parking

Parking in the area is very difficult, and there is little space for drop off and pick up. The site car park has barriers at the entrance. There is metered parking near the DRC on Trumpington Street, including two disabled bays. Call in advance for advice on parking for a short term visit.
