Mathematical SciencesUndergraduate study


As an undergraduate you will benefit from the world-class research facilities, educational resources and amenities that make Southampton one of the best learning environments in the UK.

Wider University facilities

The University’s continued investment in research facilities, totalling £200m over four years, has resulted in a number of state-of-the-art buildings. These include the award-winning EEE building, interdisciplinary Mountbatten Building and the Life Sciences Building, which opened in September 2010.

We also have an enviable library service, with five libraries offering a total of 2.6 million publications and a wide range of online resources as well as dedicated study areas and IT facilities.

Coming soon: Multi-million pound laboratory

We're investing £12m in our facilities, including a complete renovation of our teaching labs, ready for students joining us in 2019.

This refurbishment will ensure our students benefit from an outstanding educational experience. It will provide students with modern, state-of-the-art teaching spaces and more opportunities for experimental work and hands-on use of advanced analytical and spectroscopic equipment.

Information and advice

The Student Services Centre is the central point of contact for all student queries. A dedicated team of trained advisors provides up-to-date advice and information about accommodation, enrolment, exams, fees, funding, graduation and ID cards.

Access to IT

All of our campuses and halls of residence are equipped with state-of-the-art computer facilities. These include high-speed wireless internet access, network points for laptops and public workstations.

Students with a disability, specific learning difficulty or chronic medical condition can take advantage of our specialist equipment and assistive technology.

Culture and nightlife

The Southampton University Students’ Union (SUSU), located at Highfield Campus, is the hub of the University social scene. SUSU is led by students for the benefit and interest of students. It's here to represent your voice on issues at local, national and international level. It has fantastic facilities and services which provide a thriving social scene for all our different communities of students. All SUSU members also have access to free and confidential advice and support.


The Unilink bus service provides a quick connection for the city’s shops, marinas, bars and restaurants. They also serve the airport, coach and main train stations.


Bespoke facilities

Mathematical Sciences students have exclusive access to their own Student Centre, a state-of-the-art learning and social space that opened in autumn 2014.

The Student Centre features interactive whiteboards, chalkboards, presentation equipment, a coffee area, and glass pods which can be used for group work.  Our students also use the Student Centre for revision workshops, and events and meetings for clubs and societies.
