7.3 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"Portsmouth itself is a small city that in truth feels more like a decent sized town. The facilities are spread across the southwest of the city, but not too distant from each other, and it's within earshot of shopping centres and the high street. Student accommodation is mostly convenient, though I stayed in Langstone student village last year which was inconvenient due to being so far out."
