Student Living in Portsmouth
Portsmouth is a small city in the south of the UK; home to over 200,000 people, 20,000 of which are students. It’s home to a top ranking university – The University of Portsmouth which is ranked in the top 100 universities in the world.
But Portsmouth isn’t just a great place to study at, it’s also a great place to live. It is full of history but also has areas with a modern vibe, making it a magnet for cultural and sporting events.
The city itself has a lot to offer students such as entertainment, shops and cultural activities. There are many local bars and clubs in Portsmouth, and those in search of a cold pint will be spoilt for choice on Southsea’s Albert Road.
Of course in the summer you will want to take advantage of the fact that you are studying at a seaside city and head down to the beach. Just a short walk from the university campus you will find four miles of beautiful beach which are backed by beautiful parks like Southsea Common, which you can stroll through on days when the weather doesn’t quite merit a dip in the ocean.
There are many other great tourist attractions in Portsmouth besides the beach. Fans of great views (and those not scared of heights) will want to pay a visit to Spinnaker Tower in Gunwharf Quays. It is 170m high and is home to the largest glass floor in Europe.
The other diverse range of attractions includes busy streets with cafes and boutique shops, galleries, museums, historic ships. And at night the city truly comes alive, with live bands playing every genre of music, great clubs, a section of bars and restaurants with food from all over the world.
Students can experience all kinds of festivals such as alternative arts, culture and heritage at the Portsmouth Festivities in June, and then top-rated bands at Victorious Festival in August.
Everything in the city is all within an easy walking distance from each other, making getting around easy. There are also excellent public transport links and students are able to use the university’s free bus service that connects the two University campuses.
London is just an hour and a half away by train, and from there you can get connections all across the UK, meaning you’ll always find it easy to spend a weekend back home when you’re feeling a little homesick or just need your mum to do some of your laundry.
Student accommodation in Portsmouth is plentiful; whether you want to meet people and share a house or would prefer a more private place such as a flat or apartment, the perfect accommodation for you is out there, and Student homes are here to help you find it.
