Open Days

There's no better way to get a taste for life as a Solent student than at one of our open days! At a Solent University open day, you can learn more about what you'll be studying at a course talk; take a campus tour and explore our our amazing facilities; and see where you could be living on a student residence tour.

All of this is still possible from the comfort of your home on a Solent University virtual open day! Join in on live course talks with Q&As and take a virtual tour of our Southampton city centre campus and accommodation. We'll have live chats with our student support and admissions teams throughout too. We're looking forward to seeing you!

Student Life in Southampton

Southampton is one of the south coast’s most vibrant cities – and Solent University, Southampton puts you right in the heart of it.

From the hustle and bustle of the city centre to the laid-back vibes of the waterfront at Ocean Village, you'll find plenty to do in this thriving student city. You'll find everything you need, from top high street brands to arts and culture, beautiful parks, numerous places to eat, and a buzzing nightlife.

Moving away from West Quay (one of the UK’s largest shopping centres) and towards the waterfront, you’ll find a hub of independent eateries, venues and stores. At the other end of the city is Bedford Place, the centre of the city’s night-life and home to a huge range of pubs and clubs.

It’s a short trip to the famous beaches of Bournemouth or the ancient streets of Winchester. Southampton Airport is your ideal ticket to the rest of the UK or even Europe. And of course, London is just a short train ride away – the perfect day-trip.

Travel Information

The main campus is situated a 5 minute walk away from the city centre with Southampton Central station roughly 15 minutes away on foot. There are seven different companies operating bus services in and around Southampton. Additionally, there is also a free shuttlebus service around the university campus during weekdays after 6pm.
