An amazing university, with lots of clubs, societies and support from students and colleagues! There is really modern facilities on the premises, which help the aid of student learning.

The uni nightlife is good. Library is huge but campus is really far from the city centre so as a result not go there very often

Had a fantastic time here, from starting freshers the Student union involved everyone and set the tone for the rest of the year. The union has its own student letting company, although not that big still offers a number of houses each year. Personally studying chemistry I found lots of support and lecturers were always happy to help outside of Normal contact time.

Southampton definitely has a good balance between social and academic life. The majority of people who go there are reasonably down to earth and don’t take themselves too seriously, and by and large the workload from your course allows you to still have an experience outside of your degree. The study spaces on the campus are relatively good, and there’s quite a wide selection. The sports facilities are one of the main things that they could invest more in, as the gym is very small, and the pitches are quite far away. The nightlife is decent, but then again I’m not massive on going out so I’m probably not the best person to judge. The city itself is alright, there’s not that much to do, but I guess unless you live in London then the same can be said for most places, and on the other hand you can always find something to do if you try hard enough, or are willing to venture a little out of Southampton, plus they’re investing in the city so there’s new restaurants and shops opening up pretty regularly. Overall I had a great time.

Large campus which has everything required in one place. Great bus links. Very organised and engaging student union. Can only focus on engineering and look to expand the sciences, whilst ignoring social sciences, humanities and laws.

Careers service and the growth and development opportunities they provide are excellent. The student life team are very helpful in libraries too, ensuring all students studying hard are well and replenished. It’s great if you’re a go-getter. Lots of opprtutnies, people, societies, help centres, and networking opportunities. Course is good too and the department is very responsive. SU is improving, lots of sustainability initiatives. But cutting staff and their pensions will not help in the future as well as the over marketisation of education and academia.

Overall a very nice campus with great support from lecturers. The halls are to a very high standard and aren’t overly expensive, however do tend to be quite spread out over the city. The unilink bus pass is a must for a few halls of residence. The city itself is brilliant for shopping and nightlife, although it isn’t necessarily the safest place to go out at night. The university is very helpful with getting home with ‘SUSU night buses’ which essentially taxi students from individual clubs to the halls at request. There does seem to be an obvious disparity between the money spent on BA courses and BSC courses, with BSC students experiencing far more contact hours and overall a nicer and more modern campus. The facilities that the uni offers are excellent, with enormous gyms and swimming pool, and the lecture halls being in general very spacious, comfortable, and well kitted.

It’s amazing that it’s a Russel group, however I think the difference from other unis stops there. You can tell that there is lots of innovative research happening but unfortunately they don’t encourage you (even as a postgrad) to get involved. I feel the library is a great space to work, that actually has enough seating etc for everyone, but the journal access isn’t great. The campus itself is spacious and pretty, it feels like a nice place to be. Overall some moans but pretty good.

Lots of green space, though some buildings could do with updating. Overall a great community feel to the place, with good amenities on campus and close by.

The campus is alright, no pretty buildings or anything, just a bit of red and grey bricks! Uni club = awful Economics course had the worst lecturers. Very disappointed The uni grad ball though great! Uni of Southampton’s effort in events and things were ace. They try so hard and are still yet to fully succeed.

Campus is beautiful and the facilities are too quality. My course is very interesting, allowing a range of topics and cross course areas to be explored. The careers service are very informative and helpful for helping people secure work and support during the application process.
