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.

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. Contact us to get help and advice with student services provision.

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.

Avenue Campus

Modern Languages and Linguistics is based in a purpose-built campus for the Humanities. We are based on the edge of Southampton Common, a short walk from the main University campus. The main Highfield Campus houses the Students Union, an impressive range of cultural and recreational facilities, the Library and many shops including a bookshop, two health practices and outlets for the main high street banks. Avenue Campus has its own library, cafe, computer workstation clusters, lecture theatres and seminar rooms.

Combining ‘Ivy League’ with ‘warm minimalism’
Avenue campus

With the facilities and learning resources as good as they are, it made studying an experience that I very much enjoyed.
