Please see our accommodation website for details on how to apply: www.soton.ac.uk/accommodation Deadlines for applying to University accommodation is as follows: Semester 1 entry: 1st August Semester 2 entry: 1st December If students wish to live off campus or are unsuccessful in applying for University accommodation, there is plenty of provision within Southampton for students to find shared accommodation in private rented housing with other UK and international students. It is imperative that all students have booked temporary accommodation before their arrival in the UK for at least 7 days prior to the start of the semester to allow enough time to secure more permanent accommodation. Please also note that the Southampton Boat Show usually takes places around the start of semester 1 in September and Southampton’s hotels and guest houses are extremely busy during this period.
