A vibrant and modern city, Southampton has something to offer everyone – and at our student residences, you’ll be right in the heart of it.
Southampton is one of the greenest cities in the country, with spacious parks which are ideal for everything from a kickabout to stretching out in the sun. And with around 36,000 students living in the city, there’s always something going on.
Big name DJs, the latest bands, West End theatre productions - you name it, they all come here. And if you're into sports, Southampton offers both Premiership football and cricket at county and international level. The city’s also home to a whole host of sports facilities, including Southampton Solent University’s own Sports Centre St Mary’s and RYA-accredited Watersports Centre.
Everything is within easy walking distance: restaurants, bars, nightclubs, our main campus and one of the biggest shopping centres in the south are all just minutes away. If you prefer something more cultured, there are countless museums, galleries and theatres.
And when you want something different, the glorious New Forest, the Isle of Wight, the south coast’s beautiful beaches and even France are all within easy reach.
Just 75 miles from London, Southampton has excellent transport links by road, rail and air. Visitors from overseas or a number of cities in the north of England, Scotland, Ireland and the Channel Islands can fly directly into Southampton International Airport, while London is just an hour and a half away by car or train.
