Human Resources


As a university in the top 100 of universities globally (QS World Ranking 2023), we attract people from all over the world.  We want you to settle into your new role and become an active member of the University community as soon as possible, enjoying life in your new surroundings.

Whether the University can provide a contribution towards relocation costs is dependent on each individual case and any relocation assistance offered will be detailed in your letter of appointment.  The relocation scheme intends to make sure the transition is as easy and smooth as possible, whether you are relocating to Southampton and the surrounding area from within the UK or overseas.

Further down the page you will find links to the the relocation scheme guidelines and forms.

If you require further information on the relocation scheme please contact Ask HR.
