With a vibrant city-centre location our campus and student residences put you right in the heart of the action – perfect for a summer residential experience.

During July and August, many of the facilities and accommodation at Solent University are available for you to hire. We offer everything from complete summer school packages to bespoke rates and services, making Solent University the ideal location to host your summer school, group or private booking.

Facilities for hire include a choice of both en-suite and non-en-suite accommodation, academic space (including classrooms, lecture theatres and computer suites), sports hall, and full catering packages. But that's not all. You can even hire our film and photography studios as part of a variety of enrichment packages.

Our experienced team provide a complete booking management service to ensure you have a smooth stay with us. As well as our standard booking management service we also offer bespoke management services, which include organising teaching and enrichment packages, and party planning.
