Southampton became my second home. I absolutely love it , I created my own life here whilst being independent and being involved in many communities through university and my passion for dance.

Study in Southampton

Southampton, situated in Hampshire on the South Coast of England, has two universities, the University of Southampton and Solent University.

University of Southampton

The origins of the University of Southampton date back to 1862, and these days the university is known for being a research-intensive and the founding member of the Russell Group. It is particularly well known for its Engineering faculty and is cited as the UK’s leading university for Engineering.

Solent University

Solent University has been a university since 2005 but has a long educational history that dates back to 1856. It has approximately 11,000 students from the UK and from around the globe. The university’s teaching has been recognised with a silver rating from the Teaching Excellence Framework.

Southampton Student Life

The city of Southampton has a relaxed seaside atmosphere, but don’t be fooled into thinking it’s a quiet place. It’s a big city with a constant bustle of activity.

Cost of Living

The cost is relatively low than big cities like London. It is a good place to live.

Shopping

Southampton has become a destination for shopping thanks to Westquay, a shopping centre that has been rated as one of the UK’s top ten retail locations. You’ll find all your high-street favourite shops here as well as an array of restaurants and a huge 10 screen cinema. The High Street and Above Bar Street are popular areas for students with shops such as Primark, TK MAXX and Urban Outfitters. 

Days Out

Sailing and Water Sports

Southampton has always been famous for its boats, making it a perfect place to have some fun trying out different water sports. All the universities will have water sports societies and clubs to join for beginners and experts, which is a great way to get involved.

 

Image Credit

Isle of Wight 

On average there are 19 ferry crossings a day to the Isle of Wight, making it a very easy and fun day out! There’s so much to explore whether it's the cobble streets of Cowes, discovering the coastline, exploring the dinosaur fossils or making it all the way to the other side of the island to see the Needles.

 

Image Credit

New Forest 

The New Forest National Park is literally on your doorstep, it takes just 15-minutes by train to get to the heart of it. There’s fantastic walking and cycling trails, traditional pubs to try and of course the famous semi-wild native ponies, who have the right of way in the villages.

Bournemouth 

Although Southampton is a coastal city strangely there isn’t a beach. However, in just a mere 30-minute train journey you can be at the award-winning sandy beaches of Bournemouth.

It's a very artistic city. There is a city wall in the center of the city. It shows the traditional British architectural style of the 17th and 18th centuries. It is also a pleasant city to live in. Because it's not very busy and it's near the sea. People here are enjoying it. read more

Southampton's vib...

Southampton's vibrant city center is a hub of activity, boasting a wide array of shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues. From high-street brands to independent boutiques, there is no shortage of options for retail therapy. The dining scene is equally impressive, with a diverse range of cuisines available to suit all tastes. Whether you're in the mood for traditional British fare or international delicacies, Southampton has you covered. Transportation in Southampton is excellent, with well-connected bus and train networks that make navigating the city and its surrounding areas a breeze. The city's proximity to stunning coastal destinations, such as the New Forest National Park and the Isle of Wight, further adds to its appeal. read more

Cost of living is...

Cost of living is better than most places. The student accommodations all appear to be very new and well kept. Not that expensive if you really are looking to save money on accommodation. Nights out remain unsafe and shady. Southampton is one of the most dangerous universities to attend for nightlife and still remains to be in 2023. Though there is presence of police in the city centre, the decisions of younger people remains tainted and questionable. Girls must stay in groups! Shopping is one of the best things the city has to offer. Diverse range of shopping from clothes such as Hollister, Urban Outfitters and Levi’s, to your standard Boots and Superdrug, to more advanced shopping exercises such as John Lewis and Ikea. There is something for everyone. Public transport is HORRIFIC! Busses showing up late or not at all. Makes you late for work or sometimes adds 30 mins- 1 hour to your journey. Unilink is a joke and shouldn’t be trusted. Blue star isn’t much better. read more

Southampton is a friendly city and pretty safe too. There are lots of greenspaces and spending a summers evening down the common with a group of friends is a highlight. There are plenty of shops, bars, clubs and restaurants to keep you happy. The unilink and Bluestar busses are super frequent which is great, and the city has an airport, train station(s) and a port, meaning you have easy access to the wider area (incl. Isle of Wight, New Forest, Portsmouth and London). Southampton is home. read more

there are so many options for shopping and eating out with two different shopping centres in the city centre. Although this is coming from someone who moved from a small town to this city, so many of the big brand name shops, and food places were new to me. Theres also a cool Christmas market and an ice rink throughout the winter. I don't really use public transport since my accommodation, uni campus, and the city centre are all close around 10-20 minute walk. I have used Uber quite a bit, which is also new to me since coming here, and every uber has been good although they're a bit expensive, so I only use them when transporting a lot of heavy equipment for my course, or if I'm travelling farther than usual. read more

Too expensive....

Too expensive. Rent is too high. Food does not taste good unless you go to expensive resultants costs you at least £15 for a single meal. small student cheap meal cost you £ 8.99 near the school. Last night I had a burger (no drink just tap water) at the University costs me £7.99. It is so expensive for me. Busses are always late, and I missed lecturers many times because the busses are full or late. The University does not listen. I stopped going in night outs because I do not have enough money to pay a £10 entry fee and spent money for expensive taxis (who charge 1.5 time the actual rate!). Google and YouTube are the only friends I have - they are cheap to talk to but highly cherished and valued by me.... This is the reality :(( read more

A lot of people describe Southampton as a 'northern city in the south', because of its still-present industrialisation. This is probably why I like it so much, because it reminds me a little bit of home. Like home, it had a golden age but quickly declined, then got bombed to bits during WW2 and rebuilt in hideous 60s concrete style. But if you ignore what it looks like, it's fab. The uni night life is incredibly good, so much to choose from (and CHEAP), the WestQuay shopping centre is great for chain stores (if that's what you like) and Above Bar Street has some more independent shops. Public transport, A++, the unilink buses are brill (and free in 1st year), the trains are well connected, v quick to London/the New Forest/Bournemouth for a day out. read more

A lovely city, but only if you actually get involved in it and don't view it as a uni place. There's a wonderful arts scene that takes place entirely outside of the uni, but most people don't see it because all the city is to them is a Bermuda Triangle of halls-campus-city centre. You get out what you put in; make the effort, get to know the locals, and you'll stop being another faceless student and you'll actually get a sense of enrichment and achievement from the town. Very well integrated bus system, big shopping centre, wide variety of clubs and pubs (the Shooting Star being a personal favourite), lots of places to eat to suit your budget and it's relatively cheap. Not a bad city, not a great one, but there's enough here to make your home if you engage with it. read more
