Southampton students have more cash to splash, as city found to be most economical in England

26th August 2015

 

Those of you lucky enough to be living and studying in Southampton already know what a great place it is. The university is one of the top 1% in the world and a founding member of the Russell Group, while the city itself is packed with activities and events to keep you entertained all year round. From the Street Soul and Jazz event at the Stage Door on 1 August to Medieval madness at the Medieval Merchants House, Southampton is constantly evolving its entertainment offering.

Now, the 2015 NatWest Student Living Index has revealed that not only is Southampton a brilliant place to go to uni, it’s also the most economical in England. The city moved up from 15th in the 2014 survey, to take second position overall within the UK – only Belfast was found to be a more economical place to study.

The results mean that Southampton’s students can enjoy more of their spare cash to splash out on the finer things in life, from enjoying the city’s gourmet eateries to a relaxed day out at West Quay.

Those used to the finer things in life will also no doubt be familiar with Collegiate’s fabulous accommodation in the city. Brunswick Apartments and London Road Studios are both just minutes from the city centre, offering an excellent location as well as stylish, high spec apartments that are perfect for discerning students. Whether you like to spend your down time pumping iron in the private gym or immersing yourself in classic films with a giant bowl of popcorn in the in-house cinema, our Southampton properties take student living to the next level.
