About the Service


Safe Solent is brought to you by you Students Union to replace the Night Bus Service that previously ran.

The service is to help facilitate late night study to our students that make use of the Library's late night opening hours, we want to make sure that you can keep up with your studies but have peace of mind that you can get home safe during late evenings, nights and early mornings spent in the library.

Running Times



Safe Solent is back for 2021 to get you home safe after your late night studies.

Monday to Thursday - 6pm to 10pm

From Monday 15th November to Friday 17th December, in line with the library being open 24/7 we will be offering the Safe Solent service from 6pm-6am daily.

Remember, masks, cards or ID & pre - booking are all required to use the library, for more information, click here.


Don't forget, if you do need to make an essential journey by taxi in Southampton (in line with government guidance), Solent students can get 10% off their journeys with the UniTaxi app from Radio Taxis, just use your Solent email when you sign up (BONUS: By using the app you actually help fund your Student Union!)
