What to expect
Our open days are packed full of activities, tours and talks - all to help you discover what life as a student at Solent University is like.
There are course talks running throughout the day. These sessions will give you a chance to meet the course leader and gain an in-depth insight into what you'll be studying. Feel free to attend more than one if you're choosing between courses!
You'll also be able to get up close and personal with some of the facilities and equipment you could be using on your course.
And our accommodation, admissions, finance and student support teams are all on hand to answer any questions you may have.
For the full picture, take a tour of the campus with one of our student ambassadors.
The theme for this open day is health and wellbeing. There will be various themed student demos, live performances from our students, and themed food pop-ups.
Take some time out
If you're looking for a bite to eat or a drink, visit the East Park Deli, Costa Coffee, or the Dock - they all serve hot and cold drinks, as well as snacks and a selection of hot and cold food.
