    Campus Safety

    Coming from the University of Illinois where there was a campus alert almost daily, the University of Southampton is incredibly safe.

    Greek Life

    There is no greek life to my knowledge.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is a club for anyone here and they are easily located and joined.

    Great for these types of students

    This university is great for students who really want to get the most out of university. The college doesn't try to confuse or frustrate you, but instead works with you.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The Bridge is a gigantic hub of eclectic activity. Visit and be swept away.

    Bang for the buck

    It's great if you are a UK citizen, but the price tag is a bit hefty for international students.

    What to do for fun

    The university constantly offers opportunities for fun or relaxing on campus. The student bridge hosts magic shows, music ensembles, or just fun parties to wind down. Take a look at the hundreds of clubs available to you.

    Food and Dining

    Fast food isn't as prevalent in Southampton, but there are plenty of restaurants. As a university with a large international community, you can expect a wide array of cuisine.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are clean and the amenities they offer are superb. I enjoy a quiet private room with a shared kitchen. The dorms are all close to campus as well.

    Academic Rigor

    These are accelerated programs, so a lot of information is packed in to a small amount of time. Southampton is a world leader in maritime related studies and it shows. The staff is incredible.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be afraid to reach out to the faculty and staff. They want you to succeed. You are also assigned your own Personal Tutor to assist you with any aspect of school life.

    In three sentences

    The University of Southampton is what other universities are supposed to be. Not only will you become proficient in your course of study, you will excel. Southampton provides you the opportunity to thrive in both your academic and your personal life.
