With a grand total of seven campuses, five of which are in Southampton itself, it might seem a little misleading to say ‘the campus’! For example, it’s hardly surprising in a coastal city like Southampton that the Boldrewood Campus exists – it holds the exciting Marine & Maritime Institute.
For most University of Southampton students, the main campus is Highfield, and it’s at the heart of the University. Set to a beautiful green backdrop and complete with buildings which have even been recognised with architectural awards, it’ll make you really appreciate your time spent in and around the University itself. What’s more, the campus is literally right next to the city centre.
There are five libraries around the University, containing over three million books, journals and reports. Plenty of these are available electronically, too, to save you carrying huge, heavy books all over the place.
When it comes to sports, the University of Southampton’s facilities are some of the best in the country. You can do all of the usual activities like swimming and attending the gym, or you can get stuck into water sports or join a team.
Socially, you’ll have plenty to do, and the University’s Union, SuSu is the best base for your student experience – in fact, it’s been voted the best base for any student, as it’s the top Union in the country! Here you’ll be able to relax, unwind, have a bite to eat or a drink, or get advice on a range of issues. You can even attend gigs and do other exciting things to mingle with fellow students.
Our Southampton University accommodation is right at the heart of this beautiful campus and so you’ll never be too far from the student life of your dreams.

Liberty Living operates in accordance with the National Code of Standards for student accommodation. The Code of Standards is run by ANUK (The Accreditation Network UK), the NUS, and Unipol Student Homes, and is supported by universities across the UK.
Liberty Living joined the Code of Standards to give our students peace of mind. You can be assured that you will enjoy a high standard of living in accordance with the Code of Standards, and a prompt resolution to problems should they ever occur when you stay at any of Liberty Living’s residences.
Liberty Living follow a distinct set of standards for our student accommodation, called the ANUK/Unipol National Codes. The purpose of these Codes, (membership of which is voluntary), is to provide students with professional housing services.
The standards chosen for the Codes reflect a balance of common sense obligations and responsibilities between landlords and tenants. They also reflect established best practice in the sector and are based on what an average student and their parents would expect of a good quality housing supplier. The standards are supported by the voice of students themselves through the National Union of Students.
What does being a member of the codes mean?
- Both parties can enjoy the benefits of good standards of housing management and practice.
- Misunderstandings and disputes are reduced.
- If problems do occur they can be promptly resolved.
- The independent complaints procedure operated by the Codes can be used for complaint resolution.
