Once completed, the Portal East Building will realize the “Twin Portals Project” of the University, with its first of these two buildings, The Portal West, inaugurated in 2007. The Project was pursued to help augment non-tuition revenues of the University and so allow Silliman to give its students more and better services that can be had from tuition and fees.

Target completion of The Portal East Building: December 2016.
