Cambridge University Library


Specialist student accommodation purpose-designed for wheelchair users, established in 1991 in memory of Bridget Spufford with funds raised by her parents. It was open to students from both universities in Cambridge. The hostel closed in 2003 in consequence of moves towards the integrated housing of all students in College or University accommodation in the wake of Disability Discrimination Act. For further details see Janet Huskinson, ‘Bridget’s, accommodation in Cambridge for students with a disability’, Cambridge 28 (Summer 1991) pp. 46-48.
