Find out more about where you'll live when you study with us.

When you study with us at Portsmouth, you'll have access to amazing facilities as part of your course – find out more about our teaching, learning, lab and testing spaces here, and take a virtual tour of our Library.

University life is about more than studying. When lectures are over and you need a break from the library, you'll find there's so much to see and do in Portsmouth. Discover the amazing places to eat, shop and socialise, the beautiful seaside and green spaces on your doorstep, and much more.
