The Diamond and Jessop West (Leavygreave Road East)
The area around Leavygreave Road East has formed a new social hub for students, staff and the general public. Leavygreave Road East, parts of Gell and Victoria Streets, and Portobello are pedestrianised making it safer for everyone.
The area is cycle-friendly and seating has created an enjoyable outdoor environment which is full of life. New trees and plants have improved bio-diversity as well as creating a great look and feel in the surrounding area.
Along with these improvements, Blackwells bookshop has moved to a new home in the Jessop West building, and there are plans for a cycle hub to make it easier for people to use their bikes around the campus.
