My experience at Unilife High Street has been outstanding. The staff here is friendly and incredibly helpful. My premium vip studio is exceptionally comfortable, and having a big screen TV. In addition, the location in the city center is perfect, with Costa and Lidl just seconds away. The weekday grab and go breakfast is convenient, and the regular interesting events they organize truly enrich the student experience. For students studying in Southampton, Unilife High Street is a fantastic choice!
Not only is the building lovely, accommodating, welcoming, and clean, but the staff are also so friendly. They truly care for every individual in the UniLife building, making UniLife a home away from home, and also as comfy as possible whilst studying at University. They also put on great events, allowing us to look forward to social events where we can hang out with our friends. From pizza nights and weekly yoga classes to big casino parties (including photo booths, a DJ, casino tables, food, and glasses of bubbly). UniLife really is worth every penny, from the gym and Netflix account included in the price to the water bottles, mugs, notebooks, an umbrella, and other essentials they gift to you on arrival. A home away from home when studying!
Great quality accommodation with excellent quality rooms social spaces and very clean facilities. Great location close to main campus which is very useful. Awesome staff who are very helpful and friendly and resolve all issues as promptly as possible :)
Incredible experience so far! Makes everything about University life so enjoyable with extremely friendly and helpful staff, amazing facilities and a fantastic location. So happy to be staying here!
I've been living in Unilife for one year. Everything in here is very good! I got a great private space with a soft double bed, separate bathroom, and a kitchen. More than that, we residents also got free breakfast, coffee and tea. Meanwhile, the area around here is very quiet and safe, and it only need to take 15-20 mins walk to Winchester City Centre for shopping and to Winchester Station for catching a national railway to any other cities. Every staff in Unilife is kind and lovely. They held many interesting events and activities for us. And the reception would take care of our parcels and mails. They also would do thier best to provide assistance when sometimes I need help.
Excellent! I love living here! It is a super nice accommodation to enjoy my uni life. It is super convenient, which means it is close to uni campus, train station and even town center, and all within walk distance. Also, the staff are very welcoming and helpful. The manager is the nicest person in the world. He is always greeting me and asking how are you, it makes me feel like home. All the facility in the studio are very modern and user friendly. It is enjoyable to live in such a place.
Unilife is the most welcome accommodation I have ever had. I came to the Uk for nearly eight years now; I would say it’s the best! And It’s the only accommodation that provides breakfast, hot chocolate, coffee and tea! The accommodation has an excellent environment and many events and free lessons that residents can attend! Winchester Train station and city centre are not far from Unilife, it will only take around 15 mins walk which is really convenient. Staffs here are nice and kind.
This is the most perfect student house in Winchester (I have lived in almost all of the student houses in Winchester in the last four years). Firstly the modern style of the interiors are very clean and functional and there is a very comprehensive range of communal spaces. Secondly, the Unilife management team is very responsive to student problems such as blocked drains and broken cupboards. The most important thing is that Unilife offers a wide range of social activities for students, such as special events every holiday and football matches, all free of charge. It's really perfect.
I mailed with one of the team member Alex and he was always responding quickly even If I asked a month later. Therefore good work of ethics just like other members in the team, Ben, Alberto, Marius... Apart from that it is basically the best located accommodation for students. We are living one of the Luxury plus studios with my partner and it is more than enough for us at the moment. I mean the place is modern-well furnished and everything but I like to problem solving capabilities of the team the most.
I have been loving at Unilife Riverside House for nearly a year and have been loving my experience! Perfectly located, 5 minute walk from Ini Campus and a 10 minute walk from the centre with no need for transport, the studios are very well appointed, modern and spacious. I have my own kitchen and bathroom, super comfy double bed, dining area and study area. I love that I have my own TV and they even include Netflix! The property is very well maintained and cleaned and the service could not be better! In this particular element, a huge Shout to the manager who is always available even on the phone and ready to help whenever needed. The communal areas are great too! I have a gym available 24/7, laundry, table tennis, pool table, PS5 and dedicated study rooms. The Internet is excellent and I can have 3 devices running at the same time without any issues. Makes it great to talk with family and friends abroad whilst carrying out my course work, Overall, just Great!
It was recommended from one of my friends who loved this accommodation, and after staying for 2 weeks here I can understand why! Their hospitality and kindness helped me feel welcomed and very comfortable!
My wife and I had booked a couple studio at Unilife High Street, Southampton. It was perfect for us as there was proper space for us both to study and to relax as well. One of the best aspects of the studio was the amount of storage we both had to keep all our bags, clothes, and other belongings. In addition to that we moved into a new building so everything in the studio was brand new and in pristine condition. The general quality of everything provided in the studio was fantastic. A special mention to all members of the Unilife staff, especially our main point of contact, Ben, who were all exceptionally helpful throughout our stay at Unilife. They were always available when required, and very quick to take action on any issues, queries or concerns that were raised. We also greatly appreciated the fact that they always ensured there were breakfast-to-go items available for the residents on a regular basis. As a result we had a very pleasant experience at Unilife.
Our son spent a great 9 weeks at Sparkford House over the summer. A great central location for Winchester, but also quiet too. Rooms were large, clean and spacious and well kitted out and presented. The open plan area excellent. The support team, especially Frank, very helpful. The booking and move in processes straightforward. Highly recommended accommodation - will happily book again for next summer
I stayed at Unilife Middle Street for a couple of months over the Summer as I was working in Portsmouth. On arrival, I was warmly welcomed at the entrance by Frank who showed me to my studio and carefully explained how everything works. He was very friendly and polite, immediately making me feel at ease in my new surroundings. In fact, all the team were delightful, and there was always somebody available to help with any problems or queries. The studio itself comprised of a bed, ensuite bathroom, kitchenette (with oven/microwave, hob, fridge freezer, kettle and toaster), TV, sitting area and desk, which were all modern and in working order. High speed internet is available via wifi or cable in every studio. The TV services included free Netflix and catch-up TV from all the free-to-air British TV channels. I felt very at home, and on the only occasion I had a problem (my original studio was rather hot in the Summer), Frank was quick to move me to a cooler studio. The building itself is very nice with plenty of amenities. On the ground floor, there is a vast TV and a free hot drinks machine. There is another TV on the first floor, as well as tables with built-in games such as scrabble. The gym looked very nice, although I never used it. Unilife also provides residents with a top-up card which can be used on the washing machines and dryers on the first floor. All in all, I had a great experience at Unilife Middle Street and would heartily recommend it to any prospective residents. Thank you to Frank, Iulia and the rest of the team.
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.
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.
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.
Thank you Luke, Jasmine is so happy at Unilife, you’ve made the whole process from Bermuda so simple and hassle free.
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.
