In addition to state-of-the-art teaching facilities, Southampton Solent University’s new ‘The Spark’ building will provide much-needed city centre conference and exhibition space for local businesses, community groups and more.
The new conference centre will feature two large flexible suites, comprising: four meeting rooms with breakout hospitality areas overlooking the atrium; a bookable business centre with reprographic facilities; and a new café and VIP dining area.
An additional hospitality kitchen is due to be installed, providing fresh, locally sourced food and barista-style refreshments, as well as producing prestige menus for all manner of occasions.
The atrium will also be made available for academic, community and corporate events, ranging from fashion shows to trade shows award ceremonies to celebrations.
Once completed, this new event space will be available for hire by individuals and local community groups as well as by businesses and public organisations.
Due for completion in February 2016, this stunning five-storey building is just one of the ways we’re marking Solent’s celebration of ten years of university status.
