The run up to Graduation is a very busy time for the Grounds Team.  Many hours are put into making the grounds look their best for our Graduates and their families.  It is also by far the busiest time of year for our Floristry Team who create all of the floral decorations for both Streatham and Penryn campuses.

Graduation 2015

The run up to Graduation Week is a very busy time for the Grounds Team, making sure that the campus is looking brilliant and that all the floral decorations are done for the Great Hall and other important areas around campus.

A lot of work was put in by our Spreytonway Team, improving the entrance to Stocker Road.

Our Central Estate and Nursery Team were responsible for creating and maintaining the floral decorations in the Great Hall, Northcote House, The Forum and other locations throughout the University.
