Welcome home

Student accommodation is more than just a roof over your head – the place you live can have a real impact on how well you settle into university life. With five halls of residence and established links with the private rental sector, our dedicated accommodation service are here to make sure that every Solent student is happy and safe within their home.

We'll be guaranteeing accommodation in our University residences for students starting in September 2020 and who choose Solent as their firm choice and apply for accommodation before June 2020.

Solent’s five student residences cater to a range of 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 students, postgraduates, officer cadets and summer students. 

Students living in Solent residences will be able to access the Solent Sports Complex for free. The package includes full access to the gym and fitness class programme.

Those who would be more comfortable renting in the private sector are encouraged to use the Southampton Accreditation Scheme for Student Housing (SASSH). This scheme, a collaboration between the two local universities, helps ensure that any property you rent is safe and secure.

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