Student Accommodation at Solent UniversitySolent University is located in the middle of Southampton, and this central location means there’s plenty of choice when it comes to finding student accommodation nearby.
Living in Southampton city centre has the benefit of being right next to campus, whilst also being at the heart of the action. However, living in the city centre does come at a premium. If you still want to be close by, but you don’t fancy the extra cost, The Polygon is a great student district and is hugely popular among Solent students.
Portswood and Bassett are also great options for students at Solent. They're a little further out from the city, so they're spacious areas, but with the great transport links in and around the city, you're still right by the action. Students from Southampton University also tend to head to these student areas, so it gives you a great opportunity to mix with other students.
