The experience

Uni’s more than what you learn – it’s the people you meet, the connections you make, the clubs, the societies, the activities, the nights out, the nights in, the days spent chatting and laughing in the park. It’s the whole experience.

And we want that experience to be the best of your life. With dedicated support teams for finance, wellbeing, learning support, disability support, health, international or faith issues, we’re there when you need us – and we get out of your way when you don’t.

Add in the Students’ Union, with dozens of student societies and their own independent student support network. And a huge range of sports clubs, from kickboxing to cheerleading, centred around our fantastic on-campus sports complex... and you’ll have everything you could want from your uni experience.

 

In the heart of Southampton

Our city

With a compact, bustling campus, located right in the heart of the south coast’s biggest city – Solent puts everything Southampton has to offer within easy reach. Shopping, culture, a rich and diverse community, sport ... and outstanding green spaces right on our doorstep.

Plus the city has great connections if you’re looking to explore. The New Forest National Park is just west of the city, a perfect playground for runners, walkers, cyclists and anyone looking for a breath of fresh air. There are flights all over from Southampton Airport, and fast rail and road links to London – perfect for a weekend away.

Over the last few years we have made a £100 million investment in our campus, introducing state-of-the-art facilities to enhance your learning. Our exceptional new sports complex. Dedicated art and fashion studios. A new mock courtroom for law. A huge range of professional-grade photography and film equipment. High spec computing labs. And more.
