Welcome to Solent University

Congratulations on your place at Solent! We can't wait to welcome you and we hope you're looking forward to joining our student community.

In Hello Uni, you'll find everything you need to know before you start your course to help you prepare for your first few months at Solent.

Find out what happens during Student Welcome, and get information on accommodation and fees and funding options. There's also a guide to life in Southampton, so you can find out what it's really like to study here. And for parents, there's information and advice at the end of this page to help you support your son/daughter to prepare for university.

Our admissions and enrolment team will email your joining instructions. These tell you your arrival/commencement date and will provide you with the necessary documents and links. If your course is online, you are likely to be given a link to an online induction with your tutor, along with your induction timetable of activities. If you are being taught on campus, you will be provided with details of the arrival room, along with your induction timetable. To find the building your arrival room is in, see our campus map.
