Portland Hill — now open


January 30th, 2018

The Portland Hill is now open and available for use following completion of landscaping work.

Included on the redeveloped hill space is a new hardstanding pavilion, along with tiered steps leading down to the Portland Building that act as amphitheatre-style seating, and cascading water features.

Staff and students have already been using the space this week and a number of fantastic photos of the pavilion have already been posted online.

The area — which is named the ‘Djanogly Terrace’ — will also be used as a screening venue for events.

The landscaping works form part of the ongoing redevelopment of the Portland Building. Other works to be completed during the current phase (Phase 3) of the building’s redevelopment include:

  • The Skybridge: This bridge, located over the top of the Atrium, will link D Floor near Careers with the Food Court on E Floor.
  • The Atrium: Works are planned to help control the temperature of the Atrium throughout the year, as well as to install more games that can be used in this area during the day time.

For all the latest information on changes around campus, visit the Estates current developments webpage.
