About this facility

Re:So is a unique retail store run by Solent students from our fashion-related courses. With employability a key element of our degree programs, the enterprise allows students to gain valuable work experience as part of the work-based learning element of their course. 

Students get involved with every aspect of commercial activity, from stocktaking, merchandising and store design, to promotion and retail management. The store also sells clothing, accessories, art and other items designed by the University's creative students and graduates.

As well as the shop floor, Re:So has an upper-level 'learning zone' which hosts guest speakers from the fashion industry, as well as workshops, photo shoots and exhibitions, all with an emphasis on developing students' retail, enterprise and employability skills.
