We offer modern, spacious and safe living accommodation in close proximity to our campuses in Malaysia and the UK. There are a variety of options to suit your personal budget.

Guaranteed accommodation

You are guaranteed an offer of University accommodation for your Foundation Year, or first year (undergraduate) at our campus in Malaysia, which will help you settle into University life. You are welcome to apply to remain in University accommodation for your second year while you are studying in Malaysia but we cannot guarantee a place.

You are also guaranteed an offer of University accommodation for both years spent studying in Southampton. Please note you will need to fulfil the criteria of our guarantee, which includes applying as a continuing student, in January of your second year in Malaysia for your first year living in Southampton. Our accommodation guarantee does not extend to family accommodation, but if you are coming to the University to study as part of a couple or family, we can still offer you support in finding accommodation in Southampton and we may be able to offer you university owned accommodation.
