The University offers partnerships with local businesses including training and research projects. Facilities at the University are also available, during the Easter
and summer vacations, for conferences, residential training courses, or group visits to Winchester. A Choice of nearly 1000 bedrooms are offered, either within the main campus halls of residence or at the West Downs
student village. During term-time they can often cater for smaller nonresidential functions during the evenings and weekends. The University can also cater for up to a maximum of 290 persons in one sitting, but also
has facilities for more modest functions.
