Southampton Solent University offers a range of support services to students living in student residences. If you need support with any aspect of your stay in University accommodation, please email accommodation@solent.ac.uk, or give us a call on 023 8201 5040.

Disability support

We aim to remove barriers to learning and help you to enjoy the full use of all facilities here at Southampton Solent.

We have made a significant investment in facilities for disabled students. We have purpose-built rooms on the ground floor of residences for those requiring accessible accommodation. For those with unseen disabilities, rooms can be reserved and fridges for medical purposes and visible or audible alarms can be fitted. We can also offer larger rooms for students who may just need extra space for essential equipment.

Staff are happy to discuss any specific requirements you might have. It's a good idea to get in touch before you begin studying so that we can offer early advice and make any necessary arrangements.

If you have any further enquiries, please email accommodation@solent.ac.uk or call the enquiry desk on 023 8201 5040.

International students

There is a warm welcome awaiting everyone who comes to study with us from overseas.

You will be sent an email inviting you to apply for accommodation online. If you want to live in student residences, fill out the online application form as soon as you are invited to do so. There is no payment to be made when you submit an application. 

To accept any room offer you will need to make a payment. If you are an EU student this will be £250 GBP. Students from outside the EU must pay a prepayment of £1000 GBP to accept their room offer with the balance of accommodation fees paid by 31 August.  Room offers made to those living outside the EU after 31 August will require full payment on acceptance.

For students who are bringing their family or would prefer to rent a private property, the Accommodation Office will be pleased to provide you with any advice you may need. Our private accommodation pages can provide you with information on finding alternative student accommodation here in Southampton.

Bedding packs are provided for international students, please contact the accommodation office team for further details. 

For information or help with any other aspect of your course application, please contact the international enquiries team.

Care leavers

The University recognises that safe, secure, affordable accommodation is particularly important for young people leaving care. At Southampton Solent University, we are able to provide care leavers with year round university accommodation for the duration of their studies, if required.

The University’s residential accommodation is used for events during the summer break; therefore, you may be required to move to a different residence during the summer.

If you decide you would prefer to live off campus in your first or subsequent years, we can provide information and guidance in finding accommodation in the local area. Our private accommodation pages provide you with details about finding accommodation in the private sector.

For more information you can contact the accommodation office using accommodation@solent.ac.uk, or give us a call on 023 8201 5040.
