Highfield is home to the University of Southampton’s main campus, and with almost 25,000 students coming to the city, Highfield is always busy. As Highfield is so close to the university campus, student homes in Highfield are in high demand. With fewer student properties available in the area compared to other student districts, they get signed for quickly. So, if you spot one you love, make sure to book a viewing.
The area is a bit further away from the main student social areas, such as Portswood, the city centre and the Polygon. This makes Highfield great for those who prefer a slightly quieter student experience.
Southampton Common is close by, which is the largest open space in the city. The park is home to the Hawthorns Urban Wildlife Centre, so it's perfect for a day out with some mates.
Student homes in Highfield come and go quickly, so make sure to book a viewing if you see a home you like. If you’d rather live in one of the other popular student areas in Southampton, UniHomes showcase accommodation across the whole city. Plus, every home comes with bills all included, so you have one less thing on your mind.
