With more and more female researchers working at the university and colleges the demand for nursery facilities has grown (it was not considered to be such an issue for male researchers or female non-researchers, which shows the cultural bias).

The design was done by David Yandell while he was at Hughes and Bicknell and the work was finished when he left to set up Cambridge Architects Partnership. An extension was added in 1995.

There is a university (as distinct from college) nursery school just around the corner from this one, on Edwinstowe Close, and that opened in 1992. That was also designed by Yandell.
