Welcome home

Whether you live in student residences or rent in the private sector, choosing a comfortable home that’s right for you is an essential part of preparing for student life here in Southampton.

Solent’s six student residences cater to a range of personal requirements and are great places to work, relax, and meet new friends. The majority of University owned accommodation is reserved for first-year students, but there are also provisions for returning, postgraduate, officer cadets and summer students.

Students who rent in the private sector are encouraged to use the Southampton Accreditation Scheme for Student Housing (SASSH). This scheme helps ensure that any property you rent is safe and secure.

All of our student residences are fully compliant with the Student Accommodation Code.
