Our house, in the middle of Portswood…

Finding a house close enough to the social epicentre of Southampton (Bevois Valley, obviously) but not too far from your 9am lecture the next morning isn’t easy. From mould to dodgy contracts, deposit protection to an infestation of slugs, looking for accommodation can seem like a minefield – but we’re here to help!

 

Come along to our Housing Week or check out our new housing resources at susu.org/housing.
