ABOUT THE AREA

The university is split between the University Quarter, which is centred around the Portsmouth Guildhall area, and the Langstone Campus. Langstone is the smaller of the two campuses, located in Milton on the eastern edge of Portsea Island. The campus overlooks Langstone Harbour and it is home to the university’s sports grounds. It also houses a restaurant for the students and provides accommodation for 565 students in three halls of residence: Queen Elizabeth Queen Mother (QEQM), Trust Hall and Langstone Flats. Langstone Campus used to be home of the University’s School of Languages and Area Studies, which has since moved into Park Building in the University Quarter.

The University Quarter is a collection of university buildings located around the centre of the city. This area contains most of the university’s teaching facilities and nearly all of the Student Halls of residence (except the Langstone student village and two halls (Rees Hall and Burrell House) located on Southsea Terrace. The University Library (formerly the Frewen Library) was extended in 2006 at a cost of £11 million. It was opened by the crime writer P. D. James. The University has also recently invested in the Faculty of Science, in particular by renovating the aluminium-clad main building, St Michael’s, adjacent to James Watson Hall, named after the co-discoverer of the structure of DNA.

On 7 June 2013, the University of Portsmouth announced its partnership with the Military Technological College of Oman. This involves the University of Portsmouth providing academic guidance and academic accreditation for the education of 4,200 students with technical roles in armed services and a few civilian employers in the Sultanate of Oman. This has been criticised by the student Amnesty International Society and by Campaign Against the Arms Trade who consider Oman an authoritarian regime, likely to use military capabilities on their own citizens or in regional conflicts.
