The student scene is based around the main campus, although Southampton city centre is nearby – one of southern England’s top leisure and cultural destinations.
The Students’ Union supports more than 120 clubs and societies, covering areas such as politics, sport, culture and religion, and including Chinese, Singaporean, Mexican and Thai societies. The University’s Chaplaincy Centre welcomes people of all faiths, and has a separate Muslim prayer room with washing facilities.
The Jubilee Sports Centre is an £8.5 million complex, with a 25m, six-lane swimming pool, eight-court sports hall and 160 fitness stations.
Our two International Student Advisers at the Students’ Union Advice and Information Centre offer assistance with practical issues like finance, immigration and visas. Our two Academic International Student Advisers provide advice on academic matters. We provide a free Meet and Greet service from London Heathrow Airport for our international students, plus a Welcome Programme to help you settle in. We offer a large number of subject-specific scholarships.
Enjoy your time in Southampton and the surrounding area.
