Earlier this year, the University picked developers Countryside and Hill to build the first 400 market homes on the 150-hectare mixed-use development.
The University is now seeking new developers for homes at two strategic locations within the new local centre of the site.
Brian Nearney, commercial director for the North West Cambridge Development, said the development will be the first at this scale in the country to be built to the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5 and BREEAM Excellent.
The development opportunity includes two lots for market housing developers to build 100 and 80 private apartments, in addition to delivering 35 apartments for the University.
The site masterplan includes 3,000 homes, 2,000 student bedspaces, a local centre with a supermarket and shops, University primary school, nursery, community centre, doctors surgery and hotel.
