Opened in September 2019, The Frank Bell Residence is ideally located on our Bell Cambridge campus. The house itself was once home to our founder Frank Bell. Since then it has been used as offices and meeting rooms, but has now been completely renovated into a fully-equipped, contemporary student residence.

It has 17 bedrooms – each with a bed, desk, chair, lamps and wardrobe – all have private bathroom facilities and access to a  shared kitchen and social area which opens out on to our extensive Bell gardens.
