Southampton: East Park Terrace and St Mary's campus

For students looking for private short stay accommodation in Southampton, please visit the Discover Southampton website.

The University has a directory of private student accommodation in Southampton city centre and the surrounding area. The scheme is called SASSH (Southampton Accreditation Scheme for Student Housing). Click on SASSH to start your search for accommodation in Southampton.

SASSH sets out certain criteria that a landlord must meet and agree to maintain, such as having valid gas and electricity certificates, and smoke detectors. By using SASSH you can search for properties and contact landlords directly to organise viewings. You can also use the message board, where you can contact other students who are looking for a house mate. You can also register online and receive notifications of newly-listed student accommodation that fits your search criteria the moment it becomes available.

For any scheme related queries, please contact the housing adviser on +44 (0)23 8201 6357.
