The New Students Guide to University Digs in Southampton

Southampton, much like its sister city Portsmouth, is a university utopia where thousands of students spend time living and studying in this vibrant city. The south coastal city has much history, a great infrastructure and plenty to do. Accommodation for students is said to be among the best in Britain for university graduates – and it won’t take long for you to realise why.

Uni-Life provides student accommodation of the highest calibre in Southampton and Portsmouth. The digs are safe, stylish and comfortable. There are a range of studio room sizes and plenty of space to unwind, relax and study on site.

The one-off cost for the room at the Southampton digs covers everything. So, following one monthly payment your money will stretch to cover all electricity, Wi-Fi, heating, own smart television and the luxury of a double bed with a bathroom attached.

There are no hidden costs or nasty surprises, once you have paid for your stay at the new student home in Southampton. When you come to stay in student digs in the city, you will need to be as close to the university as possible. That is why Uni-Life accommodation spaces are the perfect solution.

Inside, the design is innovative, halls spacious and very much self-contained. One of the best features about university life in Southampton is that you can have a partner live in with you. There are very few landlords in Britain that will allow a partner to share your digs unless they are also a student. All that is required is a small couple’s supplement and there are plenty of double rooms for two people to live in comfortably.
