Campus Facilities


We were already proud of our campus, and we are now investing £400m into our next exciting venture. Here
are some of the amazing facilities that are already up and running:

The University Library

Our spacious, comfortable and well-equipped library is open 24 hours a day during term time. It boasts meeting pods, soft seating areas, a café and almost 390,000 printed books and DVDs, 725,355 e-books and 56,290 e-journals.

Social learning facilities

Our students have access to the following, and more:

  • Free Wi-Fi across campus
  • IT Help Centre for free support during term time
  • Laptops on short-term loan
  • Computer suites with specialised software
    and equipment
  • Free Microsoft Office 365 download
  • Open access areas, printing facilities and
    group working areas
Future Technology Centre (FTC)

Students of science, technology, engineering and
maths (STEM) subjects can work on real-life projects
with companies attracted by the FTC’s advanced facilities and specialised equipment.

Forensic Innovation Centre (FIC)

Our partnership with Hampshire Constabulary
sees, for the first time in the UK, operational police
staff located on a university campus. With the
Constabulary’s scientific service’s staff, and a growing
network of partners, including the Defence School
of Policing and Guarding, we work closely with
academics and students to drive forensic research
with direct impact and offer work experience to our
students to support their employability.

Bloomberg Suite

Students can access the same data, analytics and
software used by over a quarter of a million finance
professionals globally. They monitor and analyse
real-time financial market data movements and
trade virtually in the Bloomberg Suite.

Professional Interpreter Training Suite

We have installed the very latest Interpreter
Training Suite from Televic, a leader in professional
communication technology and supplier to the
European Parliament and international industries.
We were the first university in the world to have
this technology.

Centre for Simulation in Health and Care

This Centre features a simulated GP surgery, care
home, one-bedroom flat, ambulance and two acute
hospital training wards.

Dental Pre-Clinical Skills Laboratory

Our 26-bench laboratory helps students develop
the pre-clinical skills needed for a career in dental
hygiene and dental therapy. Each station is equipped
with a dental handpiece, suction, overhead dental
lamp and computer monitor.

Motion Capture Studio

The Motion Capture Studio uses the latest
technology including a Vicon optical system. A key
role of our studio is working with commercial clients
and UK studios on numerous projects. This means
we can provide industry-relevant experience to our
students while they study topics including virtual
production and virtual reality in VFX, gaming and
the arts.

Replica Law Court

A replica law court gives students an authentic
environment in which to practise unscripted mock trials.
