Warsash Maritime Academy's new £6 million maritime campus unveiled

Southampton Solent University is proud to open the doors to its new home for officer cadet training and first certification courses, previously taught on the top site at Warsash Maritime Academy.

Situated in St Mary’s campus within the grounds of City College - just a short walk from Southampton’s city centre – the new facilities will open for officer cadets on 18 September 2017.

Officer Cadets will have access to a wide range of facilities at the St Mary’s campus, including brand new engineering workshops, a welding area and electrical and control laboratories, along with an ECDIS simulator suite and Marine-Electro-Technical Officer (METO) workshops.

Just a ten-minute walk from the University’s main campus on East Park Terrace, officer cadets will also be able to take full advantage of a 24-hour library (term time), learning resource centre, sports facilities and student union. A stone’s throw from the city centre, students will also be on the doorstep to a wide range of local amenities.

Practical short courses and teaching for the fire school, maritime safety and offshore, first aid and medical, and seamanship courses, remain at the waterside, lower site of the current Warsash Maritime Academy campus, with investment plans for new and redeveloped facilities.

Future development phases will involve teaching provision for senior officers and superyacht certification relocating to the University’s main campus, along with bridge, engine and liquid cargo simulation courses and maritime professional development programmes.
