Hi there,

I came to Portsmouth through my second choice so I didn't have my accomodation sorted and I was able to get a place in the accomodation I wanted. If you have any concern or further questions the University does have an advice/ clearing hotline which you can contact- 023 9284 8090. Further details about University Portsmouth clearing can be found on the website- https://www.port.ac.uk/clearing-and-...source=adwords.

I hope this helps

Hi! interpret

This completely depends on what sort of accommodation you are looking for and your personal choice.
For example, having an ensuite or shared bathroom, having a single or double bed, your budget, how many people you would like to share with, and your preferred location (although all university halls are no more than a 5-minute walk between).

I lived in Rosalind Franklin in my first year. It suited my budget, had my own bathroom, single bed (but meant I had more floor space in my room), and I only had to share with 5 others. It was right next to a popular club, so that was ideal. Like all of the halls it was a 5-minute walk to the train station, a 10-minute walk to the shops and supermarket, a 10-minute walk at most to university buildings, and a 15-20 minute walk to the beach.

I hope this helps!
Best wishes

Hiya!
I lived in trafalgar hall this year and it was great! The beds are a decent size (3/4) and the desks are massive so there's lots of space for working. There is a good amount of storage space too; there is under the bed storage but the beds are pretty heavy so I mainly used it for things I knew I wouldn't really need.
Although we had a few problems throughout the year (chair's breaking, shower's blocked, etc), maintenance were quick to fix our problems once we had logged them on the app.
If you have any questions about trafalgar I would be happy to answer them!
In terms of Catherine and Greetham, Catherine is a very social hall; the social spaces are very spacious and there is always something going on there. I can't comment much about the bedrooms as I didn't live there but from what I have heard they are good. If you are a very social person and like parties then Catherine is definitely a good option - although it is slightly more expensive.
A lot of people I know from Greetham tend to go to other halls when they want to party or socialise as they aren't the top spots for this, but they are a good price and have the essentials that you need. They are basic but if that is what you're looking for then they are great.
Most people who leave reviews have either something really bad or something really good to say, so you tend to get one of two extremes. I wouldn't rely on them too much - take them into consideration of course, but they aren't the be all and end all.
Hope this helps!

Ensuite room Margaret rule hall available.

Our son has taken up an apprenticeship and so has no need for the room. If interested please let me know and the tenancy can be moved through unite.
