You can apply for accommodation in one of our houses if you are coming to Southampton with your children. We prioritise applications from international students from outside the EU.
Most of our houses are suitable for families with up to 3 children, aged up to 16 years. If you have more than 3 children you are welcome to apply, but we have limited properties suitable for larger families.
Location, furniture and features
Our houses are mostly 3-bedroom properties near Hartley Avenue and Chamberlain Road. They include beds, furniture and white goods. They also include either on or off-road parking.
We offer these houses on an assured shorthold tenancy, usually starting in September and running for 12 months. Housing charity Shelter offers more information on assured shorthold tenancies.
Rent is typically around £1100 per month, but the exact figure will depend on which property you live in. We’ll tell you the cost of your rent when we offer you a house.
You'll pay your rent monthly by setting up a recurring card payment through our online system.
You will have to pay a deposit of 1 month's rent when you sign the tenancy agreement. This will be held in a deposit protection scheme.
Current availability is limited and securing a flat is not guaranteed. Offers are made on a first-come, first-served basis; and only once you have an Unconditional Firm offer to study at the University of Southampton.
