Home from home
A team of people that creates the right environment
We understand that when your son or daughter leaves home to study at university it is normally their first time living away from home. This can be an anxious time for parents. We are committed to making that transition as simple and stress free as possible.
Safety and security
Watch and listen to what our students have to say about the safety and security at Unilife student accommodation.
“I have felt very reassured as a parent knowing that Vaughn was in a clean, secure environment. He tells me that he always got a very quick response from Luke with any query. I cannot recommend Unilife highly enough.” - Parent of a Unilife student
Unilife accommodation offers high level security which includes, 24 hour CCTV both inside and outside the building, a high specification video intercom door system and secure electronic entry using key fob access. If, for any reason, there is a problem with their studio then our in-house maintenance team will quickly resolve the issue. Watch our videos to see what past students say about Unilife.
Our billing is very simple – all our studios are all-inclusive so this means that you will never incur any unexpected surprises with our student accommodation. This means that you won’t have to ever worry about internet, water, heating, electricity, contents insurance or TV licence bills. We also include 50 laundry credits (enough for 25 washes and 25 dries) which, if needed, can be topped up with an easy to use cashless card system. View our full studio features. No one offers better value!
Unilife student accommodation is in the best locations right in the heart of the city and just a short walk from the university campus. This means that your son or daughter won’t have to walk miles, or down poorly lit and quiet streets to get home. Our buildings are also very close to main transport links making travel hassle free and more affordable. View our locations for Portsmouth, Winchester or Southampton.
Our studios offer self-contained student accommodation with the luxury of en-suite facilities, a double bed, smart TV, on site state of the art gym (Southampton only) and high speed unlimited internet connection. You can also expect innovative design, spacious layout, ample storage and very comfortable beds. However, don’t take our word for it, instead take a 360° virtual tour of our studios and buildings here.
Our goal is not to be the biggest but to be the best. We are committed to excellence and to ensure that we deliver a high level of professional standards, service and quality within our accommodation, we’ve signed up to the National Code of Standards.
Overall very impressed with quality of accommodation and level of service. Billing is simple as it includes all the services; electricity, rates, gas, water, council tax and so on. The students have all they need in their own space, so have somewhere to study without being disturbed. Social events if they want to be involved. Comes at a price above the basic halls or renting, but nicely packaged and happy with our choice.
After three amazing years at Unilife – Middle Street, my daughter is considering a further year with Unilife to extend her degree to a Masters; this is the ideal time for me to express my immense gratitude to the Unilife Team for the last 3 years. Unilife was the perfect choice from the start and has continued to provide excellent, luxurious ‘home from home’ accommodation for University Students.
Three years ago, I made contact and found the entire team at Unilife to be genuinely honest, open and professional at all times regarding their product, service provided and costs involved and I chose Unilife without any doubts. The integrity of the Senior Management and all staff I met was apparent and I haven’t looked back. A happy, safe and secure student is a student that will learn and strive to achieve their full potential at University.
Unilife students are totally secure and so comfortable, with modern and luxurious apartments that allow them their privacy along with a close community ethos promoted by the on-site team. The multi-purpose common room; onsite gym and washing machines/dryers mean students have all they need and more within the building. I have seen my daughter flourish whilst living at Unilife for three consecutive years and for her to be considering another year is testament to how good it has been.
The location of Unilife is so close to the University faculty buildings; to shops; to the Library; and to the Clubs – which also enhances the safety aspect with short distances for students to walk to, and return home to at night - just a five minute walk with the friends for life she has met also living at Unilife.
The entire team of staff, with specific mention to the House Manager – Frank, take time to get to know each student well offering them understanding and empathy, ensuring their well-being is monitored from a distance during their University years and in addition, ensuring the students feel a sense of belonging who have pride in their home and treat it with respect whilst entering adulthood.
Unilife provides the perfect ‘home from home’ unique student experience in safe and secure accommodation buildings and peace of mind for parents.
I have found that the room is so comfortable with all the necessary equipment and easy to settle down for students. Also, the security is good which is important for young students. As a parent, I would like to recommend Unilife not only to my daughter but also her friends for the next year.
Just wanted to say how impressed I was when I dropped Vaughn off. We were met and given a comprehensive tour of the studio and the site and explained how things worked. The studio was gleaming and I feel so reassured that he has made the right choice for this upcoming year. One doesn’t always receive a service akin to ‘what it says on the tin’ but from first contact with you, to moving in, Unilife certainly does deliver a first class package.
