University of Southampton
3.8/5
Housing
Type of housing: Hall of Residence, not on campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
Sharing a house with other students or working people must be very different : housework would not be done by cleaners, and we would have a real living-room to share (in the hall of residence I was living, rooms were grouped in flats - 7 rooms per flat - with 2 toilets and 1 kitchen : we missed a living-room with a couch or a comfortable chair to rest and talk together)

The accomodation fees were a bit expensive (£ 200/month for a 9 m2 bedroom) but the atmosphere was fantastic. The majority of my hall of residence's students was international : there were students from Spain, England, Italy, Greece, France, Germany, Turkey, India... I met lots of different people, from different cultures, but also from different educational backgrounds. I am a scientist ( I have an aerospace engineering diploma), even if I am doing a further degree in High Technology / Industrial Marketing at HEC (Paris), and it was really interesting for me to talk and meet law students, litterature or drama students. I learnt a lot there, by living alone (I mean without my home friends and family) in a foreign country, in terms of ways of thinking and mentalities which are differents for each culture, but also in terms of socialization by living a whole year with the same people in the same "big house".

I lived with two girls from the U.S. and a british guy...my flatmates were really nice and the house was comfortable, but it was too far from the city center and university..anyway, some of my friends were living in the same area so I had no problems at all.

Why?
Those houses builded with red bricks are just so typical! Moreover, the student halls of residence are a bit... gloomy. Saw them and didn't like. Also easier to organize parties!

Take care, the university was supposed to arrange something for me, but I received a mail, in July, saying that I finally had to search for something on my own!

It is cheaper to live in a house than in halls. Additionally you have the chance to live with people from other countries and learn from them.

Exchange students coming in winter semester do not have the possibility to live in a hall. The university could do more to help students finding private accomodation.

It was pretty hard to find an accomodation and university of Southampton didn't really help us to find an accomodation.
