Seven campuses, one community

Our campuses - five in Southampton, one in Winchester and one in Malaysia - are purpose-built learning environments with their own sense of identity and a shared community spirit.

More than just the perfect places to learn, they are warm and welcoming environments in which you can grow as a person - with an array of leisure, fitness and entertainment options alongside world-class teaching and research facilities.
