    There's an event on the 31st for freshers who didn't get into halls if you want to go.

    There's also a facebook group!!

    Finding a house share is really easy with Portsmouth uni, they have loads of resources to help you out. You can email [email protected] if you're really worried but I recommend going to one of the house hunting days if you're able to get there. There is a lot of student accommodation throughout Portsmouth. You can use http://www.portsmouthstudentpad.co.uk/ to find a place yourself, I recommend using this website as all of the landlords who advertise on there are handled by the uni and have to meet a required standard. It also means you don't have to pay admin fees which can sometimes be huge like an extra few hundred if you go with a private agency.
    Don't worry about it though, just look for others in the same position as you on the facebook group. You'll be looking to live in areas such as Fratton and Southsea. As close to PO1 2DF area as you can get. Fratton is around 25 minute walk down 1-2 popular roads. The far end of Southsea is around 35-40 minutes but most of the student houses are closer so around 25-35 mins. These are ones closer to Albert Road and Fawcett Road.

    Feel free to message me if you need any help.
