Welcome CentrE

On the Students’ Union’s first floor you’ll find our Welcome Centre. At the heart of the Students’ Union, the Welcome Centre is the best place to get information on everything happening at the Students’ Union; including events and societies.

As well as being an information centre, for everything happening around the Students’ Union, the Welcome Centre is also a shop. We also stock lots of essential university items such as stationary, toiletries, memory sticks and Solent University branded clothing. Currently, the Welcome Centre also has some very affordable household items;  such as plates for as little as 30p each and mugs at the bargain price of 20p. These items are limited stock.


You are also able to purchase your Totum Card in the Welcome Centre. The Totum card is your pass to hundreds of discounts on the high-street. You can choose between a 1, 2 or 3 year card which will entitle you to save on student stuff, throughout your time at Solent. 

Not only is the Welcome Centre a handy place to shop and get information; you can also join societies and find out more about them in the centre. We have information on all active societies, as well as societies looking for new members. So, if you’re interested in joining an extracurricular activity, just ask.



Open during term time, the Welcome Centre is a convenient place to pick up last minute supplies, at student-friendly prices. We stock lots of choices of notebooks, pens, backing card and other art supplies. We also stock things you might need throughout the day like toiletries, Rimmel makeup, birthday cards and clothing.
