What is varsity?

Launched in 2016, Varsity is an annual sporting series between Bournemouth University and Solent University.

Varsity is held each spring. It's a showcase of our student sport, with a healthy competition held between the two local universities, and gives Team Solent’s sports clubs the opportunity to celebrate the University’s sporting ability and showcase their talent.

The event consists of various sporting matches including cricket, football, basketball, and rugby. The event itself normally has over 1,700 people in attendance, so if you're not competing, you can come along and show your support.
