The University of Portsmouth has the widest choice of accommodation on the South Coast during the summer vacation period at three distinctly different locations across the city.

All of the accommodation is close to the seafront and the main visitor attractions including The Historic Dockyard, Gunwharf Quays and the iconic Spinnaker Tower.

We are also close to the city’s main events, including the America’s Cup, Victorious Festival and the numerous events on Southsea Common.

From June to September each year, we offer over 2,500 quality award winning beds, allowing us to accommodate individuals, coach parties and special interest groups, and conferences of almost any size with a choice of catering options from room only, self catering, B&B, half and full board.

With so much choice and flexibility it is no wonder that we are the most popular choice for accommodation in Portsmouth.

If you require bed and breakfast accommodation we offer a large choice of single and double en-suite rooms located on Southsea seafront. Independently graded as 3 star, you can expect facilities including guest lounges, garden, bar, restaurant and for those who are lucky enough – stunning views across Southsea Common and The Solent to The Isle of Wight.

We also offer private serviced self catering flats in the centre of the city, providing the ideal choice for longer stays.

For students or visitors on longer term work experience placements in and around the city, we offer the flexibility of longer term inexpensive accommodation to suit your needs.

For group bookings over 100 bednights, we can offer a very wide choice of options combined with an additional range of benefits including a dedicated booking manager, complimentary space for a coach driver or group leader, discounts and flexible payment terms.

And finally language schools. We are one of the most popular destinations for language programmes from overseas. Our guests come from all over the world for two weeks at a time, experiencing the rich history of Portsmouth.
