Our world-class buildings such as the award-winning EEE building, interdisciplinary Mountbatten complex and the Life Sciences building have contributed to the University of Southampton’s status as one of the best learning environments in the UK. These facilities are a result of an investment of £200 million.

Key facts

The University provides a wealth of social, arts and leisure facilities for students.

Off campus, you will find all the transport, shopping and leisure facilities you would expect from a multicultural city with a population of over 200,000 people.

Wireless and networked high-speed internet access is widely available across all campuses and in all five libraries.

The majority of the Southampton Education School's campus-based activities are located in the landmark EEE Building. Certain specialist research work takes place in two nearby buildings. For teachers in training, significant parts of the academic year are spent in partnership schools.

Library facilities

The Hartley Library, situated at the centre of the Highfield campus, is open seven days a week for most of the year. All key texts for taught Education programmes are held here. Most activities, including reservations, are computerised. As a registered student, you are able to access a huge range of journal articles from home or work through the Library’s web-based system. 

Video & studio facilities

In 2010 the School established a Video Learning Environment (VidLE) to encourage and support staff’s use of video technology in their research, teaching, and enterprise activities. The VidLE comprises a HD video studio with nonlinear editing equipment that allows staff to produce high quality video clips and programmes. The VidLE also has a range of video conferencing systems that facilitate the use of Skype, Adobe Connect and some more dedicated video conferencing equipment.

Academic support

The Southampton Education School is justifiably proud to have been recognised by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) for our research training. This reflects the high quality of our student recruitment process, and in the training and support we can then provide. The areas covered by ESRC guidelines range from generic training skills and specific methodological techniques to research outcomes and career pathway support. Visit the ESRC website for more information about the guidelines.

Pastoral support, health and wellbeing

Highfield campus has its own GP (medical) surgery and a professional counselling service, and there are other health services close by. Students with a disability can access dedicated support and advice from the University’s Student Services.
