There’s a lot to love in Pompey, a city geared towards students with loads of great bars, pubs, and shops. The nightlife is incredible, loads of student nights on and everyone is up for it. The main place to go out is the strip of clubs by the Guildhall, although there are lots of little places if you seek them out. The uni is also amazingly supportive, with great facilities and the Purple Door offering great careers support for all students, and the SU is also really helpful as well as serving amazing drinks and food.
