FAQs: Student Accommodation in Southampton

How much does rent cost for students in Southampton?

Private student accommodation in Southampton usually costs from £139 to £185 per week.

However, there are several factors that decide the cost of rent for student accommodation in Southampton. This includes the facilities and amenities that will be provided as well as whether it is privately owned. Student accommodation sites are usually either owned by a landlord, a university or dedicated student accommodation company, such as Collegiate.

How much will I spend on bills in Southampton?

On average, UK students in Southampton will spend approximately £37 per month on bills. 

Luckily, when you book with Collegiate student accommodation in Southampton, you’ll enjoy a range of money-saving benefits. All bills for utilities – electricity, gas and water – are included in your rent on a ‘fair usage allowance’. Not only that but hot water is available in your private en-suite 24 hours a day and heaters are controlled exclusively by tenants in their own living spaces. High speed internet and WiFi is included with your room and throughout the building – bedrooms also include an ethernet cable connection should you need one. So you know you can study with total confidence wherever you find the best space.

You’ll also enjoy exclusive access to features such as an on-site laundry room, grab and go breakfast with free hot drinks, common room with table tennis and pool table, private gym, study rooms and an Amazon locker.

How do I pay for my student room in Southampton?

You can make rent payments online using your credit or debit card via your Collegiate Portal account or by bank transfer – whichever you find easiest! Although if you’d like to pay by bank transfer, be sure to contact the Accommodation Management Team who will be more than happy to help you get that sorted.

You have the option to pay your rent in 1, 3 or 4 instalments. If you’re paying in one full instalment, the whole process can be completed quite quickly. However, if you’re opting for the flexibility of 3 instalments, it’s still super quick and easy, there’s just a few things for you to know. You will need a UK-based guarantor or you can Housing Hand as a guarantor – although note that Housing Hand does come with an extra charge, so check out their website for the full details. 

The flexibility of paying in 4 instalments is offered to students who’ll be relying on a student loan or grant to pay their rent. You’d still be expected to pay 4 weeks’ rent 10 days before your tenancy start date, and a larger instalment at the end of September – which is typically when loans and grants are paid in to students.

To help you keep on track of your finances while you’re studying, log in to your Collegiate account where you can download a full schedule of payment dates.
