There are also a large selection of national chain restaurants to enjoy in the centre, including; Nando’s, Bella Italia, Wagamama and more.

  2. What's around

    Liberty Point is located on St Mary’s Street, close to the city centre and a range of activities to keep you entertained at weekends and in your spare time.

    The residence is ideally suited for students studying at The University of Southampton and Southampton Solent University.

    Alternatively, if you fancy the theatre instead, the Mayflower Theatre is 10 minutes’ walk away and hosts shows which include everything from ballet or panto, to opera and comedy.

    The Titanic disaster had a huge impact on the people of Southampton with hundreds of people losing family members. The SeaCity Museum in the city centre is well worth a visit, and looks into the history of the ship and the crew members on board.

    Stressful day? There’s no better place to unwind than at Southampton Common; 20 minutes away. The common currently includes 326 acres of woodland as well as a beautiful lake and lots to do any enjoy with your flatmates. If it’s art and history you enjoy, Southampton centre is bursting with it! You can visit the Southampton City Art Gallery for contemporary pieces, or the Medieval Merchant’s House built in the 13th century – well worth a visit!

  3. Getting active

    If you like to keep fit, University of Southampton students can take advantage of the Southampton University Sport & Wellbeing membership, with gyms on Highfield campus, Wessex Lane & Glen Eyre. The closest is at Mayflower Halls in the city centre – under a 20 minute walk away.

    Water sports are very popular, and you’re right on the coast so why not give them a go? For starters, you can experience yachting and windsurfing on the Solent. You should also watch out for the annual boat show, it’s pretty impressive as it’s the biggest in Europe!

    If you’re feeling adventurous, visit the dry ski slopes at The Alpine Sports Centre– 10 minutes’ drive from Liberty Point. The centre caters for all types of winter sports and is a really fun day out for everyone.

  4. Travel and transport

    Liberty Point is located on St Mary’s Road, less than a 20 minute walk to the city centre and close to the main train and bus station of Southampton, making it easily accessible for all.

    There is a newsagent on the doorstep of Liberty Point, selling all day-to-day items, and some tasty treats. London Road is a 3 minute walk away with a range of shops including; a Tesco Express, Starbucks, Subway, Post Office and various high street banks.

    For a larger selection of goods, the city centre has both a large Asda and a Aldi supermarket – 15 minutes’ walk from Liberty Point.

    Both University campuses have on-site library facilities with all resources you will need throughout your time studying. The nearest alternative library to those found on each University campus would be the one found in the Civic Centre which is only a 6 or 7 minute walk away (depending on your choice of footwear).

  6. Your wellbeing

    If at any point you need help with finances, careers or your general welfare, you can get this for free and confidentially when studying at any of Southampton’s universities. Liberty Point is located close to campus so you will never be too far from the help you may need.

    Students of The University of Southampton are encouraged to register with the University Health Surgery on Highfield Campus. All other students can take advantage of Nichols Town GP Surgery which can be found over the road at The Royal South Hants Hospital (you can also find the minor injuries unit here if you require this).
