I managed to get quite a few jobs during my time at uni, all of which were in some way connected either to the University or the Students' Union. Transport around the city is managed in your first year with a bus service that's included in the rent you pay in halls, and many students tend to either walk or cycle in the subsequent years. If you want to go into the city and don't have a bike, you can walk it in about 30 minutes or you could take the bus (2 for a single or 3 for a day ticket). If you do want to cycle, there is a good number of places to lock bikes up on campus and around town. Food and drink on campus are generally pretty well priced, but the prices aren't rock-bottom. They're still cheaper than going elsewhere, mostly.×

Started looking for a house to share with 6 previous flatmates just after christmas as houses were going quick and we wanted good value for money. Houses are expensive in southampton, averaging 90 a week for a fair quality house. Were told bad reviews about large student agencies, however we decided to go with these as they were cheap and avoided agency fees. Have had no problems with them - if you respect their houses, they will respect you.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
