Our halls of residence

When you stay with us in our halls, you get the keys to your own place and open the door to a community of new people. And there are plenty of perks, like these:

  • All our halls are in the centre of Portsmouth, close to our campus – so however early your first lecture, you should get there on time
  • Every room is furnished with a bed, desk, drawers and plenty of sockets for your laptop, phone, and anything else you need
  • Free broadband and WiFi, so you'll always be connected
  • All bills are included in the cost of your room: gas, electricity, heating, water, and basic insurance
  • The majority of our rooms are en-suite, with private shower, sink and toilet
  • We have accessible rooms for students who need them, approved by DisabledGo
  • All our rooms are singles, and they're yours for the entire academic year – even over the Easter and Christmas holidays
  • Our Residence Life Team is always on hand if you need help, advice or support – and they also provide out-of-hours pastoral care 7 days a week, all year round

We can find you a quieter room or a place in single-sex accommodation if you'd prefer it. Just don't bring your car – unless you're a blue badge holder – or your pet. If you're staying in halls, you'll need to leave them at home.
