Your University of Portsmouth experience

I enjoy the atmosphere and student life that is offered by the university, through all the varied activities, clubs and societies.

Living in halls was a wonderful experience as I met a lot of friends, and it helped me widen my knowledge to a lot of diverse cultures and traditions. University Halls also made my life easier, as it was close to the city centre and my university buildings, which saved me a lot of time travelling to do my other activities and hobbies.

What makes Portsmouth unique?

For people who like exploring, Portsmouth is great for sight-seeing and having a walk around the city. What makes Portsmouth special is its attractive seaside, with beautiful sunset views by the sea. Portsmouth has a lot of attractions you may want to explore, such as the Spinnaker Tower, Historic Dockyard, Southsea Castle, and the different museums they have across the city.

If you are a lover of food, then you are in the right place to experience variety, from Thai food to Mediterranean food and all the way to Caribbean dishes. 

Finally, you can always have a fun experience watching Portsmouth Football Club play, as it offers a great and enjoyable atmosphere.

Your extra-curricular activities

I enjoy exploring the city, and spending late nights near the beach with my friends.
