Our campus and the city of Southampton
Our lively student community is home to over 100 different nationalities - – giving our campus and our classrooms a diverse, multicultural feel. And beyond our walls, there's the city of Southampton – a vibrant and modern city just over an hour away from London - and one of the south coast's biggest and brightest cities. Our city-centre campus gives you easy access to Southampton’s shops, culture, diversity, and sport. Plus, our new on-campus sports complex is perfect for a quick gym session between lectures.
You need more than knowledge if you’re going to succeed – you need connections, confidence, practical skills and professional experience. And that’s exactly what we set out to give you. During your time at Solent you’ll have the chance to work with our exciting and innovative student enterprises. With unique opportunities, ranging from retail to event management to freelancing in design or film, we pride ourselves on giving our students the real-life experience to succeed and excel.
