Life in Southampton

Our campus is in the heart of the city centre, which means you're within walking distance of a range of bars, pubs, nightclubs, restaurants, shops, cinemas, museums, and more!

Not only are there lots of things to do on your doorstep, but we're also just a short journey away from London, Bournemouth, Winchester, and the New Forest, and a short ferry ride from the Isle of Wight.

If you love live music, you're in for a treat. Southampton is home to fantastic live music venues, including the O2 Guildhall, which is a regular stop for nationwide tours, and independent venues that showcase up-and-coming bands.
