History

The University of Cambridge Faculty of Education was formed by the merger of three prior departments within the university: the Institute of Education, the Department of Education (initially on Trumpington Street) and the teaching interests of Homerton College. The new Faculty building was designed by Building Design Partnership, and was opened in 2005 by HRH Prince Phillip. It was named the Donald McIntyre Building in 2009.
