As an international university with over 160 years of history, we know that employers are expecting more from the modern graduate. Through our innovative approach to teaching and learning, we ensure that graduates hold the skills, knowledge and workplace experience that they'll need to succeed.

Throughout your course you'll learn from specialists, academic professionals and practising experts - benefiting from their unique industry insight and valuable professional network. You'll also work with a range of high-end facilities, learning your trade on the same equipment that you will be expected to use in the workplace.

All of this takes place in Southampton, a thriving student city that is home to more than 30,000 students. The Solent campus and our six halls of residence all sit in the heart of the city centre, so you'll never be far from the things that make life at Solent great.


Our six student residences are not only modern and attractive, they're also great places to work, relax, socialise and meet new friends. If you're looking for alternative student accommodation then you can opt for private rented accommodation, either lodging with a landlord or sharing a property with some friends.
