    I've been accepted for the mathematics course at UoP, and am now looking at housing. I know you cant pick specific halls, you can just express a preference as to which type of halls you would like to live in, but do people have experiences of the best halls to live in?

    A couple of links I've already looked at for others to also look at:


    List of accommodation at Portsmouth:

    Portsmouth's allocation policy:

    A blog which I found on another thread about housing, both parts:

    I think choosing halls at Portsmouth is really individual, it depends what is at the top of your 'must have' list...

    Guildhall Halls
    -All in the city/ short walks to most uni buildings
    -Close to pubs/ clubs
    -Both en-suite and shared
    -Apparently they are the noisiest halls/ fire alarms often/ people shouting late into the night

    Langstone Student village
    -20 minute bus from uni
    -Communal/ friendly atmosphere (so I've heard)
    -Some catered accommodation
    -Both en-suite and shared

    Rees+Burrell (my first choice!)
    -10 minute walk from most uni buildings
    -Overlooking the beach
    -Catered
    -Both en-suite and shared

    Hi all, Hannah from the Housing team here! I think Izzy's post actually sums this up quite nicely! Nice one Izzy!

    As Portsmouth is a city-based university rather than being on a campus, it doesn't matter where you are located in terms of accessing your uni buildings. TBH, you will probably be doing lectures etc. across a variety of academic buildings so even if you were in a hall near "your building", you may not actually be in it a lot of the time! We don't allocate by hall - it's done by you picking your preferred location, then you pick your preferred type of accommodation - this way it gives us more options to allocate you to something you prefer )
