    of Unilink buses to several Southampton campuses
    and amazing train networks with stations near
    popular student accommodations and also ferry
    services that ensure students get ample scope to
    explore the city in leisure.

    rail system. All trains start from Southampton
    Central train station with routes to several
    neighbouring regions like Salisbury, Cardiff,
    Portsmouth, Weymouth, and Bournemouth, to name a
    few. It takes around 1 hour 30 minutes to travel
    to London with train services starting from
    Southampton Central train station. University
    students can take the Uni-link U1 bus service to
    reach both Southampton Central stations and
    Southampton Airport Parkway. The Winchester

Ferry Service 
  • Southampton also has a ferry service operating
    under the ownership of Red Funnel with regular
    ferry connections between Southampton and the
    Isle of Wight. Students willing to explore the
    city a little differently, can take Unilink buses
    or Bluestar that operates from the mainland and
    likewise by Southern Vectis on the Island. There
    are two ferry services that operate on the
    terminus at Town Quay which is a car ferry
    service and a fast catamaran passenger service on
    a ferry. These services provide links to East
    Cowes and Cowes and on the Isle of Wight. The
    third ferry service operates to Hythe which is
    situated on the other side of Southampton Water.

  • The above mentioned public transport options to
    the university campuses make commuting for
    morning lectures easy for students. They have
    more time for additional studies and also save a
    lot on transport expenses. Apart from searching
    for affordable student accommodation Southampton,

    is yet another reason why students opt to study
    in this city. University living, a global student
    marketplace, offers 100 verified properties,
