Graduate Launch Pad


The Launch Pad will create three new desk spaces for recent graduates from creative industries courses, who studied at Southampton Solent University, Arts University Bournemouth and Winchester School of Art (University of Southampton).  Desks will be available for 12 months and will include support and mentoring, access to the creative hub, workshop and gallery and super fast broadband.  

spudWORKS is located in the beautiful New Forest and only two minutes walk from Sway Train Station with regular trains to Southampton, Winchester, London and Bournemouth and the West. 

Places will be in high demand and we are asking all applicants to submit 'a pitch' to be considered for a place. Successful applicants will have access to desks for 12 months. A small charge of £200 will be required to cover keys and admin otherwise the desk space is free, with access 7 days per week from 8am until 10pm.

This is an incredible opportunity to develop your own business, launch a new idea or test something out without the burden of large financial overheads. Only apply for a place if you are committed to working regularly at spudWORKS for the full 12 months.  


An exciting new addition to the spudWORKS Creative Hub is the Graduate Launch Pad sponsored by Utilita.

All spaces are currently in use. The next available space will be from August 2021.
