With innovative design and bespoke facilities, the visionary new £33 million Spark building offers our students the very best learning environment, while the atrium itself is a real hub of social activity, designed as a central social space for students and featuring state-of-the-art lighting, acoustics and equipment for exhibitions and events.
Solent is focused on ensuring students have access to the latest professional-grade equipment and facilities. It has its own 3D/35 mm cinema, high-definition (HD) television studios and a state-of-the-art outside broadcast truck students use to broadcast live from events such as Glastonbury festival.
The University also has FA-accredited sports facilities, a modern media academy, £1 million music recording studios, a performance space with HD filming facilities, a £1.3 million hi-tech sports laboratory, and an in-house composites lab and 60m towing tank for yacht design and testing.
Our Warsash Maritime Academy features one of the world’s only manned model ship-handling lakes at Timsbury, along with high-tech bridge and engine room simulators. Our Warsash campus is also home to our very own RYA-accredited water sports centre, offering courses and taster sessions in sailing, powerboating, kayaking and more.
