If you're looking for a house based outside the city, then Southdown offers a slightly cheaper alternative. Due to the location, which is around half an hour from both universities, student houses in the neighbourhood tend to be more affordable.
It's only a 20-minute journey to both Bath Spa University and the University of Bath, so it’s super simple to get to those early morning lectures. The main bus routes in the areas make it possible to get to Bath's city centre in just under half an hour, and is just a short distance to Oldfield train station.
Other neighbouring areas, such as Oldfield Park and Widcombe, are popular for students, so you'll have plenty to explore in the middle of the social scene.
Students homes in Southdown make for an excellent place to live in Bath. The area is a bit quieter than some of the other popular student hotspots, and there’s an amazing range of student accommodation. If you’d like to check out the rest of the city, we have student properties available in all of the most popular student areas in Bath. Plus, with UniHomes, all properties come with bills included.
