Why support the University of Southampton?

A gift to the University of Southampton is an investment in talented people and world-leading research that seeks to address some of the biggest challenges facing the world today.

Whether supporting opportunities for students or our life-changing research, a gift to Southampton is a gift that counts.

Public funding for new posts, teaching, buildings and facilities has been dramatically reduced, so in order to respond to the opportunities provided by new research and technological advances, we must find funding from other sources.

Your gift, whether large or small, can help us to maintain our excellence and to advance as one of the leading research and teaching institutions in the world, tackling society’s biggest problems while working towards solutions for tomorrow.

Support talented students

We aim to continue providing education of the highest standard for the very best students, regardless of their means. Our donors can make a real difference for students who, without such support, would be unable to fulfil their ambitions.

Find out more about our Student Support Fund.

Enrich students' experience

We want our students to have a fulfilling Southampton experience with access to the best resources and opportunities. By contributing to student-led projects, our supporters help to ensure that our students graduate not only with excellent academic credentials, but a rich pool of experiences that will equip them for the future.

Find out more about our Student Experience Fund.

Create new opportunities

Our donors' support of the Fund for the Greatest Need enables us to fund projects that create new learning and development opportunities that benefit students, researchers and the wider community.

Change lives through research

At Southampton we want to change the world for the better. This means taking our research beyond the lab to effect real-world change. Supporting appeals such as the Centre for Cancer Immunology or Gift of Sight will help us to continue finding innovative solutions that will change lives.
