University of Portsmouth £250M plans for campus development

February 21, 2024

The University of Portsmouth has launched a three-week public consultation on its revised estates strategy. The university is planning to invest £250 million over 10 years on a number of exciting campus development projects that will create world class learning, teaching and research facilities and enhance connections between the university and the city.

The projects include constructing new landmark buildings, refurbishing existing facilities and creating new public spaces, such as a new student hub, a new modern technology building, a teaching laboratory building and a revised development at the Victoria Park site.

Portsmouth’s residents and businesses are invited to share their thoughts and views on the broad proposals.

Work has already begun, with the completion of the award-winning Ravelin Sports Centre that has been recognised as one of the UK’s most sustainable sports centres. It has won a series of accolades and awards such as the 2023 IOC IPC IAKS Architecture Prize, the Public Sector Project: Design Stage Award at the BREEAM Awards 2020 and receiving a top rating of ‘Outstanding’ from BREEAM UK, the world’s leading sustainability assessment for building.

Professor Graham Galbraith, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Portsmouth, said:

“We are now approaching a very exciting milestone in the development of our estate, with planning applications for a number of proposed buildings due to be submitted shortly.

These plans are a major investment by the University to support our strategy to deliver globally recognised research, become one of the UK’s leading universities in environmental sustainability and deliver our commitment to enhancing the local community.

The public’s input is invaluable in helping us create an even better teaching, learning and research environment for all which enhances the attractiveness of our city.”

The consultation runs until Sunday 3 March with a Community Event on Tuesday 20 February from 4 to 7pm in the University’s Eldon Building.
