Student life in Portsmouth

Portsmouth is a vibrant waterfront city on the south-coast of England. From its rich maritime history, to unique shopping destinations and renowned museums, not to mention miles of beautiful waterfront, it caters to a wide range of tastes and hobbies. The city’s flat, making it perfect for strolling and cycling so it’s very easy to get around.

For the perfect weekend activity look no further than the acclaimed Gunwharf Quays, a semi-outdoor shopping mall hosting a variety of retail outlets as well as some great spots for food and drink. By night, Portsmouth comes alive with gigs, bars, clubs and shows making it a buzzing city in which to spend your student years. We offer a range of different accommodation options depending on what you’re looking for. From right next-door to the uni, to a coveted spot in the city centre and a more quiet and residential street, we’ve got all bases covered!
