Solent University Facts

  • Based in the heart of the major port town of Southampton, Solent University has its origins in a private school of art founded in 1856. Over the following century and a half, a technology college was formed that eventually merged with the art school to become the Southampton Institute. After gaining the power to award degrees in 2004, it changed its name the following year to Southampton Solent University.
  • In 2018, following decades of growth in both facilities and student numbers, the decision was made to drop Southampton from its name to become simply Solent University.
  • The other university campus can be found right in the city centre. In addition to the maritime faculty, the university is divided into the following faculties: the school of art, design and fashion, the school of business, law and communications, the school of media, arts and technology, and the school of sport, health and social sciences.
