New Hall blue plaque in Cambridge

New Hall, a women's college of Cambridge University, was founded here in Silver Street in 1954, with two tutors and sixteen students.

In 1964 the College moved to its permanent home in Huntingdon Road.

Murray Edwards College is a women-only constituent college of the University of Cambridge. It was founded as "New Hall" in 1954, and unlike many other colleges, it was founded without a benefactor and did not bear a benefactor's name. This situation changed in 2008. Following a donation of £30 million by alumna Ros Edwards (née Smith) and her husband Steve Edwards, New Hall was renamed Murray Edwards College, honouring the donors and the first President, Dame Rosemary Murray.
