Amenities and Features
Southampton Student Accommodation
Austen House is our brand new student residence in Southampton’s city centre. Whether you’re an undergraduate or a postgraduate, we’ve got a room option that will suit you down to the ground (more about that below).
The Southampton Solent University campus is just a 10-minute stroll from our complex, and University of Southampton is a quick bus ride away. Whichever one you’re studying at, Austen House puts you within easy reach.
Extra-curricular fun is right on your doorstep too. The enormous West Quay shopping centre is within walking distance, there are countless great bars and restaurants dotted around the vicinity, and the city’s parks (Palmerston, Houndwell and Hoglands) are a stone’s throw away.
Anyway, here’s some info about Austen House itself.
First of all, you might like to know that Austen House has loads of social spaces. Nine to be exact:
•Cinema Room | Black out room, projector and squashy seating, what more could you need?
•Reading Room | Looking for somewhere quiet to relax? Our tranquil reading room will be just what you need.
•Gaming Room | With 8 screens, controllers and gaming chairs, the only question is GTA or FIFA?
•Art Room | Work benches, easels and cutting desks give you a space to be creative and collaborative.
•Music Room | Lot’s of space for electric instruments and a mixing desk make this the perfect space to jam.
