Welcome to St John’s Innovation Park

St John’s Innovation Park, owned by St John’s College, University of Cambridge, is an integral part of the North Cambridge research and development cluster, the most established and well-connected technology location outside of the city centre. As such the Park is privileged to be home to a number of innovative and exciting R&D, technology and life science organisations including DarkTrace, IESO Digital Health, PwC, Qualcomm, Raspberry PI and Samsung.

Park History

St John’s Innovation Park consists of a 21-acre plot of land, wholly-owned by St John’s College, Cambridge since 1534. Today, the Park provides a campus style setting close to both Cambridge city centre and major transport routes.

St John’s Innovation Centre was the first building to be completed in 1987 and was the first centre of its kind in Europe dedicated to supporting young knowledge-based businesses. Following the success of the Centre, a second phase, Dirac House - now the Dirac wing - was completed in July 1989, and the self-contained Jeffreys Building followed in February 1990. Four further buildings: St John’s House, Edinburgh House and the Vitrum and Platinum buildings, were completed in 2001. More recently the Maurice Wilkes building, positioned at the gateway to the Park, was completed in June 2018.


St John’s Innovation Park is much more than just a place to come to work. Park occupiers enjoy being part of the vibrant community and benefit from organised on-site sports activities as well as business-focused networking, talks and social events. The surrounding area is also a bustling hub of activity for those that wish to get out and about at lunchtime or during the day.
