We want to know how experiences of seeking sanctuary have touched your lives.

Monday 12th April 2021

Register now.

Solent University has committed to becoming a University of Sanctuary through the strategic priorities of engaging our communities in the new 2025 strategy and our Access and Participation Plan 2020-21 to 2024-25.

The Universities of Sanctuary is an initiative to recognise the good practice of universities which welcome people seeking sanctuary, including refugees and asylum seekers, into their communities and seek to foster a culture of awareness and inclusivity.

Learning and sharing are fundamental principles of the University of Sanctuary. Therefore, we are keen to engage and build a network of students, staff, academics, alumni and external partners with lived experiences of seeking sanctuary, teaching and researching topics related to seeking sanctuary, or are interested in supporting sanctuary seekers.

The second meeting will build on our first meeting. We will be actively seeking your input on our plans to become a University of Sanctuary and make a difference to people seeking sanctuary through the power of education.

Anyone is welcome to attend the network and there is no requirement to have attended a past meeting.

Please share this meeting with your fellow students, colleagues and alumni. If you have any questions or are unable to attend but would like to attend a future meeting, please email

We look forward to your involvement and input.
