Offices for rent in Cambridge

With a city where roughly one sixth of the population is an ever growing and continually expanding student/ graduate community, you’d be right to think that office space in the historic University City would be very affordable. Eger24 knows where to look to locate the best lettings on the market and highlight them for you. The city is home to many start-ups who have never run a business before. If you find yourself in that position, follow some of these general rules when viewing a space for rent:

Conventional Office Rentals

• As a rule thumb allow 50 – 60 sq ft per person*
• Suited for larger business operations
• Short term leases require 2 – 3 years minimum commitment

Serviced office Rentals

• Let by the desk • Choose from standard offices to executive suites
• Expand or contract as your business grows or shrinks
• Rolling contracts that are flexible
• One monthly bill covers all associated services

Shared office Rentals

• Monthly rolling contracts
• Benefit from developed infrastructure & facilities already in place
• All utilities & rates packaged in one monthly bill
• Provides a more professional feel compared to a lone office
• Can give the allusion of one bustling working environment

​*This rule applies to all of the above

Cambridge Business Front

The education sector is obviously the largest section of the local economy. This has helped the city become home to businesses that are very much focussed on research and development as well as software and high value engineering. You might sometimes hear areas of the city referred to as Silicon Fen due to the density of high-tech business in the area.

Business Parks

Cambridge has many areas for a business to grow in. Major business parks include Cambourne Business Park, Crowley Park, Citylife House and St. Johns. Popular areas for renting office space include IdeaSpace, Mount Pleasant House, East Road and Station Road.

Transport Links

Cambridge grew at a rate faster than was expected in the 20th century. This led to a poorly planned out road network that at times can get easily congested. Because of this, a lot of locals use bicycles to get anywhere they need to. It has led to the city having the largest rate of cyclists in the UK. Cambridge Railway Station provides the quickest link to London, which can be reached in just under an hour. It also provides a vital rail link northwards towards Birmingham and to London Stansted Airport.


Of course everyone knows just how big a city Cambridge is in terms of its educational background. Commonly referred to simply as ‘The University City’, it is home to two colleges: the University of Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin University. The former is actually a number of schools scattered around the city, hence the unofficial moniker.

Social Life

One of the largest tent poles in the local economy is the tourism industry. It is a major driving force for the city and when you visit you can understand why. Home to a plethora of museums and gorgeous architecture, it is a very rich city culturally. Social life for many involves a trip to the pub and sports play a big role in the city too. Visit during the summer and you’ll find a fair or festival taking place almost every other day. Main festivals held throughout this time of year are the Cambridge Folk Festival, Strawberry Fair and Cambridge Film Festival. See what commercial properties to rent in Cambridge are available below.
