Austen House

Southampton Student Accommodation

Austen House is conveniently located in Southampton’s city centre. Whether you’re an undergraduate or a postgraduate, we’ve got a room option that will suit you down to the ground (more about that below).

The Southampton Solent University campus is just a 10-minute stroll from our complex, and University of Southampton is a quick bus ride away. Whichever one you’re studying at, Austen House puts you within easy reach.

Extra-curricular fun is right on your doorstep too. The enormous Westquay shopping centre is within walking distance, there are countless great bars and restaurants dotted around the vicinity, and the city’s parks (Palmerston, Houndwell and Hoglands) are a stone’s throw away.

Anyway, here’s some info about Austen House itself.

Social Spaces

First of all, you might like to know that Austen House has loads of social spaces. Eleven to be exact:

  • Cinema Room | Black out room, projector and squashy seating, what more could you need?
  • Reading Room | Looking for somewhere quiet to relax? Our tranquil reading room will be just what you need.
  • Gaming Room | With 8 screens, controllers and gaming chairs, the only question is GTA or FIFA?
  • Art & Textiles Room | Work benches, easels, sewing machines and cutting desks give you a space to be creative and collaborative.
  • Music Room | Lot’s of space for electric instruments and a mixing desk make this the perfect space to jam.
  • Photography Room | Lights, backdrops and plenty of space.
  • Individual Study Room |  Don’t fancy lugging your books to the library? The study room is a perfect alternative.
  • Group Study Room | Got a project due? Head to the group study room!
  • Common Room | Complete with pool table, TV, and plenty of comfy seating.
  • Communal kitchen/bar area| BYOD (drinks!) Complete with oven, kitchen facilities, fridges and a dining area – free bookings available for any celebration!
  • Café | Swing by the café area in reception for some complimentary tea and coffee before your morning lectures.

Yeah, really.

Your Room Options

  • An en-suite room in a 4 or 5-bed shared flat – ideal if you want to socialise a lot and make new friends right away
  • A standard room in a 2-bed apartment, which would be perfect for sharing with a friend, or if you’d prefer a more chilled-out atmosphere
  • A studio, which you’ll have all to yourself!

You’ll get a double bed no matter which option you choose, so you can always get a good night’s rest when you need it (before an exam, after a night out, or whenever).

  • Awesome place to live. Loads of excellent study spaces, cinema, games room. Really secure. Great value.
  • Recently, I've been looking for the perfect accommodation for Sept 2017, due to being in Wales I couldn't view the accommodation. I got in contact with Austen house and Amelie did a Skype call showing me the most perfect accommodation after discussing over email what I was looking for. From then she has stayed in contact and helped me with every question I had from payments to guarantor info. Amazing service provided by Amelia. Extremely looking forward to living at Austen house now in September.
