Southampton is a wonderful place to study, and accommodation can have a real impact on the experience of living there. Solent University has five halls of residence in the city centre available to postgraduate students as well as undergraduates, which cater to a wide range of requirements and budgets. Solent student accommodation is guaranteed for students who confirm their place and apply for accommodation before June of the year in which their course begins, and all residents have free access to the Solent Sports Complex, the university’s state-of-the-art fitness centre.
The university also offers an accreditation scheme for those who would prefer to rent through the private sector, which ensures that any rented property is safe and secure. There is also an option to select LGBT+ accommodation when applying for accommodation through SU.
SU is a well funded and equipped institution with a huge range of facilities available to its students. These range from course-specific resources such as their advanced composites laboratory, or 3D modelling workshop, to more accessible amenities like music practice rooms or the watersports centre. There are also a number of vocational instruction centres such as the fire school and medical training centre. A full list of facilities is available on the university website.
