Living in Southampton as a student

This busy port city has a strong education sector, being home to two universities – Southampton Solent University and University of Southampton. The latter is consistently rated as one of the world’s best 100 universities, and together they host a student population of 32,000. Southampton might be famous for its port which Titanic famously sailed from, but the city has much more history than that. A visit to Tudor House and Garden would be a fantastic history lesson for everyone. Art lovers should head to the City Art Gallery, but also not forget about John Hansard Art Gallery on university campus! Sports fans will be satisfied by having a Premier League football team on their doorstep. A visit to The Hobbit would be a treat for all fantasy fans – the pub serves cocktails inspired by J.R.R Tolkien’s books and just oozes quirky atmosphere. Oceana is one of the typical choices for a night out, whilst a wine bar at Jesters & Clowns is a more refined option (but you can always pop down to the basement if you decide you want to hit the dancefloor).
