University of Southampton
7.6 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 123 ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"The location is perfect, out of the city centre but with easy access. There's loads of student housing nearby, as well as green spaces. It's also close enough for shops and supermarkets. Campus is the perfect size; not small enough to feel unestablished and crowded but not so big that it doesn't feel all connected with buildings within easy walking distance. The buildings themselves are mostly decent and with nice green spaces. The 'red brick area' is useful and the library is very nice. Local shops nearby. Hartley Grove halls are modern, close by, good size, well managed and nice to live in."
