From the rubble of the old Faculty Center that had burned down a few years ago, the UP will construct a new College of Arts and Letters Building in Diliman.
Three years after its establishment, the UP Resilience Institute has finally broken ground for the construction of its own building.
UP Visayas (UPV) held a simple groundbreaking ceremony for the University Avenue in its Iloilo City campus on August 16, following the turnover and blessing of the newly-restored Main Building. The University Avenue is part of the campus’ re-orientation of its academic core zone. Funded by the Department of Public Works and Highways, the cost of the whole project is estimated at P100 million.
Sixty-one years after it was inaugurated, Wenceslao Q. Vinzons Hall—UP Diliman’s student center—is set to undergo the first phase of its renovation. The P100-million project was launched on February 11 and is expected to be completed in 2020.
On October 20, 2018, the University of the Philippines (UP) and the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), led by UP President Danilo L. Concepcion and DPWH Secretary Mark A. Villar, held the groundbreaking ceremony for the UP Student Union Building to be constructed at the back of Vinzons Hall and facing Katipunan Avenue in UP Diliman, Quezon City.
UP and the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) are teaming up for infrastructure development across the University System through a memorandum of agreement signed on September 8.
