University of Southampton

Use University facilities

From cutting-edge research equipment to high-tech conference rooms, many of our facilities are available for business use.

Research facilities

For pioneering research you need first-rate facilities, and we have invested in the very best. From our state-of-the-art wind tunnel facilities to one of Europe's few high voltage laboratories, our facilities span a broad range of industries and disciplines.

These facilities are available for commercial hire with technical support, or as part of a full consultancy package. Many of our partners have found this to be highly cost-effective compared to investing in their own facilities.
