First-class facilities

Our students have access to the latest equipment and facilities, including:

  • our own on-campus 3D cinema.
  • high-definition (HD) television studios.
  • a state-of-the-art outside broadcast truck, which students use to broadcast live from Glastonbury festival and other high-profile events.
  • FA-accredited sports facilities and £1.3 million hi-tech sports laboratory, working with professional footballers and elite athletes.
  • new £1 million music recording studios.
  • an in-house composites lab and 60m towing tank, for yacht design and testing.

Our Warsash Maritime Academy, meanwhile, 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 watersports centre, offering courses and taster sessions in sailing, powerboating, kayaking and more.

On top of that, our main campus will soon be transformed by a multi-million pound major development project, due for completion in 2020 and providing a modern, environmentally friendly new learning environment with space for social events, exhibitions and shows.
