Life on campus


Everything you need for your life at University is right here on campus.

FoodFancy a bite?

There are plenty of places| where you can eat and relax, with something to suit everyone's taste. For freshly made coffees and a range of snacks, try the Artisan Café| overlooking Guildhall square, or Costa Coffee located next to the University's main reception.

If you're after something more substantial, then why not try our food court in 'The Dock'|, offering a healthy salad and smoothie bar, traditional cooked meals, all day breakfasts, and Fairtrade| produce. If it's a case of eating on the run, we have a variety of cafés, allowing you to just 'grab and go'. 

Getting around

By living in the halls of residence| everywhere is within easy walking distance. For the times when it's raining or if you have heavy shopping there are numerous bus services| operating around the city that run to the residences and the campus.

Being a large city, Southampton is well connected by motorways, trains and coaches so it's easy to go home for the weekend or just visit somewhere different. London is just over an hour away, and even Europe is within easy reach as Southampton has its own international airport.
