Welcome Home

Where you live during your university experience is more than just a roof over your head. It’s a place of your own – to relax, study and spend time with your friends.

The place you live can have a real impact on how well you settle into university life, so it is best to take a good look at the options available and find choices that best suit you.

Applying for your student accommodation early means you will have the best chance of getting accommodation that is perfect for you.


Student Residences

There are more than 1,200 single study-bedrooms spread across five residences, providing a mix of en-suite and non en-suite university accommodation. The student residences are near to each other, which creates a real student community feels. Many of the residences have a flat-style layout, with their own front door and access-only entry, as well as being self-catered with fully equipped kitchens.

Solent’s five student residences cater to a range of requirements and are great places to work, relax, and meet new friends. A large portion of the university-owned accommodation is reserved for first-year students, but there are also provisions for returning students, postgraduates, and summer students.

Students living in Solent residences will also be able to access the Solent Sports Complex for free. The package includes full access to the gym and fitness class programme.

Private Housing

Alternatively, 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. Discover all our accommodation options or contact a dedicated housing advisor by email: accommodation@solent.ac.uk
