University of Portsmouth
7.3 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 144 ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"Student accommodation is very mixed and there isn't enough for all first years in halls, but the university does then help to house students around the city in houses. Facilities are really good, no complaints. The city is compact, which means it doesn't take long to get anywhere and cabs are really cheap. Staff are very helpful and friendly and the student – staff relationships are good."
