The University of Portsmouth sits in the heart of the city on the south coast of England. The city itself is filled with entertainment, shops and cultural activities - all within easy walking distance from one another. The university has two main campuses: the University Quarter, which is located right in the heart of the city, and Langstone campus, which is the smaller of the two and is situated on the eastern edge of Portsea Island. Students are able to utilise the university's free bus service that connects the two campuses and makes for easy movement between the two. With more than 200 undergraduate courses and 150 postgraduate - as well as 65 research degree programs - Portsmouth offers both a diverse and varied range of options to students. On campus, the Student Union ensures that it caters to its diverse population by providing specific learning centres, cafes, student bar and also an alcohol-free area.
Fratton offers a wide range of Victorian terraced house accommodation alongside some more modern options. Accommodation hear is cheaper than in the city centre or Southsea, and the area has many low-cost shops and cafes reflecting its working class roots.
A large area on the coast of the city, Southsea is a seaside resort and residential area very popular among students in the city. It is also culturally rich with its own theatres, bars, clubs and pubs alongside museums and buildings of historical significance, which offer a great alternative to Portsmouth city centre itself. Adding further to its popularity is its relative proximity to the University of Portsmouth which is in most places an easy bus ride away.
Southsea is a very popular area amongst students, while other student-focused areas include the aforementioned Fratton as well as Guildhall and Hampshire.
