Clare College Cambridge

Welcome from the Buildings Department

The Buildings Department looks after all your building related needs, from maintenance on the properties to refurbishments and new builds.

The Buldings Team

Buildings Team


You will see that all the tradesman wear uniform so you should be able to recognise them easily. All of the team have University Photo ID badges, so if you have concerns please ask to see these.

Reactive Maintenance Requests 

All reactive requests can be reported through the Reactive Maintenance website. If you are a member of Clare College click the link to report an issue. Please have your Raven ID and password as you will need these to get into the system. Below is an image of the front page:

If you have an emergency outside of normal working hours (08.00-16.00) please report to the nearest Porters' Lodge.

Planned Works

We endeavour to provide a week's notice to planned works that require entry to rooms and always give 24hrs notice, unless acting on an emergency where it is necessary to follow the problem through.

Refurbishment works where are using consultants to survey building would be given similar levels of notice.


In the Buildings Department we are very keen to support the Environment Committee in the work to reduce the impact of our buildings on the environment. To help with this, please remember to turn lights off when not in the room and turn heating valves down to an appropriate level.  We are always happy to show you how the systems work to make sure your stay at Clare is sustainable.
