We'll be guaranteeing accommodation in our university residences for students starting in September 2019 and who choose Solent as their firm choice. 

For students who have special requirements, please contact the accommodation office.

Students at Solent University have a range of options available when deciding where to live. Whether you want to live in student residences or private accommodation, these pages will help you to arrange the perfect student living space.

Student residences

We have more than 2,000 single study-bedrooms spread across six residences, providing a mix of en-suite and non en-suite university accommodation.

The student residences are located in close proximity to each other, which gives the area a real student community feel. Many of the residences are in a flat layout with their own front door or access-only entry. All the residences are self-catered and have fully equipped kitchens.

Located within walking distance of the campus and the city centre, there is no real need to bring a car - although there is parking available at Hamwic, Chantry, Deanery and Lucia Foster Welch student residences.

Private sector

Some students prefer a bit more independence and choose to rent in the private sector - either renting a property with friends or lodging with a resident landlord.

In partnership with the University of Southampton and Southampton City Council, we have compiled an accredited directory of private student accommodation in Southampton and the surrounding area, the scheme is called SASSH (Southampton Accreditation Scheme for Student Housing).
