The Department of Chemistry at Lancaster University hosts a 700 MHz wide-bore spectrometer which is mainly used for solid-state NMR although also has solution-state capability. As this instrument is currently used mostly for solid-state NMR, solution-state measurements are scheduled as and when needed, requiring approximately one day setup time to change configuration.
