Cambridge Building Society


About us

We are an independent, thriving, mutual Society which has been proudly integrated into the community since 1850. We provide mortgages for people buying their own homes and offer a range of savings accounts to people looking for a trusted home for their savings.

Our Head Office can be found in the heart of Cambridge and our strong local network of branches and stores stretches out around Cambridgeshire. Our customers are able to do business at a time and place that’s convenient for them. We’ll be here online, on the move via our money app, by visiting one of our branches, contacting our customer contact centre or speaking to our expert Mortgage Advisers.

Our mortgage Intermediary network continues to expand which benefits from a dedicated BDM team. We strive to make a difference every day with our expert customer advice and we’re delighted that this has been recognised in a number of industry awards. We were crowned ‘Building Society of the Year’ at the MoneyAge Mortgage Awards and ‘Regional Lending Provider of the Year’ at the MoneyFacts Awards in 2019. In 2020 we were commended in the ‘Best Regional Lender’ category at the MoneyFacts Awards. We took home the title of ‘Best Lender Website’ and have been highly commended as ‘Best Regional Building Society’ in the What Mortgage Awards 2020.

In September 2020 we launched our third rental property under our unique Rent to Home scheme, specifically designed to support First Time Buyers in and around the Cambridge area.  Its purpose is to support those individuals who are able to afford to pay a monthly mortgage, but due to the higher cost of living in the region are unable to save enough for a deposit. The scheme is part of the Society’s ‘Making the Difference’ initiative which aims to positively impact the communities it serves. Other aspects of the initiative include a £500,000 Community Fund that provides grants of between £2,000 and £10,000 to local partnerships with charities and community groups who support those with homes or housing needs.

Our mission at The Cambridge remains 'Finding Solutions’ for our members. We’ve developed a digital Society powered by people approach, embracing advances in technology, complemented by face to face engagement with our in store experts as the ideal in financial services. We encourage all members of The Cambridge to join the digital revolution, with support from real people and our trusted financial name. We continue to evolve and our recent developments include the launch of Your Saver, an account which offers customers a broad choice in how they manage their account, offering access via multiple channels.
