Unite Students: Accommodation Tours | University of Portsmouth

Welcome to our tour of Unite Students halls. My name is Bea and I will be your guide today. Unite Students operate four of our official student housing. They're all located in the city centre with easy access to the local shops and train station and a short walk to just about every building on campus. Unite students halls are separated into flats with kitchens so that you can prepare your own meals or cook together as flatmates. Every room has its own en-suite and is fitted with a bed, desk and drawers. You'll have access to free Wi-Fi and broadband and all your bills will be included within the price of your room. Each Unite Students hall has his own slightly different flavour, with different exteriors and social areas with seating, as well as study spaces and entertainment, like pool and table football. Every hall has 24 hour security in operation, so you will always feel safe and secure during your stay. Each halls also have their own laundry room and bike storage and most of them have printing facilities too. Chaucer House even has a gym.
