Discover how simple it is to secure your guaranteed room in our halls of residence

You’re guaranteed a room in halls if you apply as a new, full-time undergraduate student starting in September or October 2019 and make us your firm choice and meet our accommodation deadline. That means you can focus on your exams, without having to worry about finding a place to live at uni.

Portsmouth is a great place to live: a young, friendly city bursting with culture and character. We have 4 miles of beach and almost everything is within walking distance. All our halls are centrally located and close to the main campus.

Plus, Portsmouth is the 5th most affordable place to live as a student in the UK (Natwest Student Living Index 2018) – so you'll have a place to call your own in a modern city that won't break the bank.
