From student resources and sports facilities, to research projects and library services – find out more about the websites we run
This is the main University of Portsmouth website where you can find and apply for our undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, read about our research, learn more about student life in Portsmouth and plenty more.
We also run a number of microsites, each focusing on a service or facility we manage, or a project we’re working on – like our site for current students MyPort, and our standalone Sport and Library sites. Some of our collaborative research projects and external partnerships have their own microsites too.
Access our microsites below.
Our microsite for current students is where you’ll find all the info you need as a Portsmouth student in one place.
Use the Sport site to sign up for gym membership, book classes, read our sports news or find a sports team to join.
Use our digital resources, book a laptop to rent, request to borrow a book, and check our opening times on our Library site
Our Study Online site is home to some of our part-time online courses – which allow you to study with us from anywhere in the world
