Solent University is a public university based in Southampton, United Kingdom. It has approximately 11000 students. Its main campus is located on East Park Terrace near the city centre and the maritime hub of Southampton.

The university’s origins can be traced back to a private School of Art founded in 1856, which eventually became the Southampton College of Art. Mergers with the Southampton College of Technology, and later the College of Nautical Studies at Warsash, led to the establishment of the Southampton Institute of Higher Education in 1984.

Southampton Institute became a university on 12 July 2005, adopting its current name on 15 August 2005
Prior to 2005, students at Southampton Institute received degrees awarded by Nottingham Trent University. In 2015 the University came to an agreement with New College of the Humanities, London whereby it will validate some of their degrees.
