It is a “fast track” reception centre which detains asylum seekers for 7-10 days for initial assessment of cases (essentially automatic refusal) before moving them on to further detention or dispersal.
It was opened in March 2000 and is run by Group 4.
The Cambridge Bail Circle provide support for detainees at Oakington.
