Portland Building is all about you. It’s a space about students, for students, where you can access all key SU and University services.
But it hasn’t always been like this. Back in 2013, and following years of discussion, the Students’ Union Officers worked to convince senior University staff that an excellent Union building would help students have a better time here – and that it would benefit the University overall.
To demonstrate just how great a new SU building could be, the then-Activities Officer and SU President took the Vice-Chancellor and other senior managers to see the Students’ Unions of Leeds and Sheffield. It was inspiring, and following more discussion, the University Executive Board agreed to invest £15m in Portland to create a brilliant building for students.
