Not only are you close to university; you’re also in a prime position in the city, too. Located on Duke Street close to Southampton Marina, the residence is within easy reach of all local amenities and transport links. There are tons of things to do without going far as it’s a bustling and vibrant city.
You’ll be safe and sound at Liberty Quays, as 24-hour security is just one of the things we include in your rent. You also get all your bills thrown in too!
Liberty Point is the perfect place to make the most of your student experience this academic year. If you’re a stickler for being on time, you’ll be pleased to know that Liberty Point sits right next to the city's universities so you’ll never be late for lectures, including Southampton Solent University and the University of Southampton!
You’ll have a fantastic communal area at Liberty Point but there’s plenty to do outside of these four walls, too. You’ll be living on St Mary’s Road and so you’re not far from all the amazing things that Southampton has to offer; from its Marina through to its lively nightlife and beyond.
You’re in great hands as 24-hour security is part of the parcel in your rent. You also get all your bills in the package too – leaving you to focus on your studies.
Southampton for students
There are plenty of great institutions for students in Southampton to pursue their further education dreams.
There are plenty of other students in the area, so there are plenty of activities and places to go geared towards people just like you. Many of the best local attractions are an easy walk from our student accommodation in Southampton!
Food is such a big part of our daily lives, and your student budget doesn’t need to exclude you from the very best of it. Southampton has everything from the cheap and cheerful to the fabulously fancy, so you’ll never be disappointed.
High Street is definitely worth a visit; just take a stroll when the hunger strikes and you’ll soon find plenty to keep you going, from classic pub grub to vegetarian fare. Fans of Asian cuisine can get their fill and then some, with an array of Chinese and Indian buffets and restaurants – Above Bar Street and Ocean Village are also worth a visit! We'd also recommend visiting West Quay Watermark.
Things to do
Southampton is the shopping hub on the south coast and actually makes the UK’s top ten for shopping destinations. There are two indoor shopping centres (the main one being Westquay), an IKEA, an impressive retail park, plus lots of boutique shopping. If you prefer markets, there are several of them – with lots of continental stalls and street food.
Cinema is also popular in Southampton, and the city offers an alternative to the big chains. Harbour Lights Picturehouse is named for the fact it overlooks one of the many harbours, but it’s the flicks that’ll keep your attention the longest. There are also other choices; Odeon, Leisureworld – Cineworld and Showcase in West Quay.
The nightlife in Southampton won’t leave anyone out! There are loads of different bars to suit absolutely all tastes, perfect for the student scene. No matter the type of music or atmosphere you’re looking for, you’ll find it in Southampton.
Arts & culture
The city is steeped in both maritime and aviation history, and the Titanic is of course a real draw. If you’re into legends and myths, there are also plenty of these which have their roots in Southampton itself.
Love the arts, music or theatre? At the Mayflower Theatre you can catch ballet, pantomime, opera and comedy, and at the Nuffield Theatre on the Highfield campus, you’ll often find performances that push boundaries. Art aficionados will enjoy the main gallery, Southampton City Art Gallery, but it doesn’t stop there – Southampton offers plenty of smaller ones too.
The Turner Sims Concert Hall is a leading venue for jazz, folk and classical music, whereas the O2 Guildhall Southampton is where you’ll find your more contemporary stuff. You can also check out The Joiners for gigs, forming part of a vibrant scene on the doorstep of your student housing in Southampton.
Health & wellbeing
Southampton is a lovely city to explore outdoors with parks such as Southampton Common, Mayflower Park and Houndwell Park ready for you to explore.
When it comes to keeping fit, the city has an array of gyms that can be found all over the place, many of which are close to your student flats in Southampton.
Of course, these days the universities put a lot of emphasis on your health and wellbeing as well, offering fitness centres as well as a variety of sports’ teams and societies. In addition, they also offer a range of health services, so that you can get advice on everything from your mental health to relationships.
Getting around the city is pretty simple with loads of local bus services which are fairly priced. Blue Star buses run plenty of services which take students from the universities to the rest of the city and beyond. There are also discounted Uni-Link tickets available to students.
If you do fancy hopping on a train and getting away for the day, it’s really easy, too. There’s regular services run to London Waterloo (every 20 minutes) and you can also escape to Cardiff, Manchester and Brighton – to name just a few.
