In 2016, the University completed construction of its new Chamberlain Hall.

The new hall of residence sits within the Glen Eyre Complex and welcomed its first cohort of students in September 2016. The Hall, which represents a £36m investment by the University, comprises 356 en-suite bedrooms across five blocks of four storeys. It features shared kitchens, common rooms, and a range of study space for independent and group learning.

A new bus pull-in, serving both students and the local community, also forms part of the development.

We have maintained a focus on quality throughout the design and delivery of Chamberlain Hall, the goal always being to create a space that students will enjoy living in and that will enhance their university experience.

Background information

The University received planning permission from Southampton City Council to develop Chamberlain Hall in 2012.

The site was previously home to the original Chamberlain Hall development, opened by Mary Chamberlain in 1959. The original building remained in use until 2011.
