University is about more than the courses - it's the feel of the place, its people and facilities, and the city surrounding it. And there's no substitute for getting a first-hand look.
Our open days are the perfect introduction to Solent University for undergraduate and postgraduate applicants. Explore the campus and our facilities. Meet our lecturers and talk to current students.
We offer tours, presentations and plenty of opportunities to ask the questions you want to ask - about your course, Solent, Southampton, or anything you want to know.
Student Life in Southampton
Southampton is one of the south coast’s most vibrant cities – and Solent 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.
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.
Whether you’re a professional thespian or just want to express yourself for the first time, Solent Drama and Performance is for anyone with an interest in theatre! We aim to put on 3 full productions a year, showcasing our talent across the performance spectrum.
Solent Sparks is a student entrepreneur’s society that is aimed at providing inspiration to every student at Solent University. The Society is in partnership with (NACUE) The National Association of College and University Entrepreneurs that run events and guest talks from Current and new Entrepreneurs.
