White Swan building

The White Swan Building, adjacent to the newly refurbished New Theatre Royal, opened for business in the autumn of 2015. 

The new building is part of a major project to create new facilities for the University and upgrade the existing Grade II listed historic building. 

Students from the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries now have access to a range of brand new spaces, including a television studio and technical gallery and a double-height theatre studio, all with industry-standard facilities. The four-storey building also includes music practice rooms, classrooms and drama
studios with fully sprung floors.

The New Theatre Royal itself has gained the Minghella Studio (a creative learning space designed for smaller performances), new dressing rooms, workshops and flytower, as well as a fully restored stage following a fire years ago.

Greetham Street Halls, a new building with 836 rooms in the heart of the city adjacent to Portsmouth and Southsea Station, has been finished and offers much-needed rooms for the current intake of new students.

The en-suite rooms, shared kitchen and dining areas are accompanied by a large common space complete with stunning views of the city. 

The skyline of the city is also changing with the refurbishment of the city centre's landmark Zurich House.

Currently undergoing a huge renovation, it will eventually be converted into 405 student rooms. An additional 595 rooms will be available at a new purpose-built adjacent halls of residence.
