You’ll be close to the most historic part of the city at your new student accommodation, and just five minutes’ walk from the busy quay. Sit on a bench in Mayflower Park and watch cruise ships dock as the sun sets over the water, then wander up Oxford Street to try Italian specialities at The Oxford Brasserie or traditional fish and chips at The Grand Café. If you’re not ready to call it a night, have a drink at The Titanic pub or listen to live soul music at the dockside Platform Tavern. Culture vultures can catch an arthouse film at The Harbour Lights Picturehouse, a short walk from home.
From your new home at Nido The Walls it’s a 12-minute walk to Southampton Solent University or a 30-minute journey to the University of Southampton on the direct Unilink bus, which passes outside your building. Get to the theatres, museums and art galleries of the Cultural Quarter in less than 15 minutes on foot, or shop to your heart’s content in the nearby fashion stores in the city centre. A National Express coach station and Southampton Central train station are less than five minutes away by car, so you can set off to explore the surrounding area at the weekend.
Greet the concierge as you come into the building, and head straight down the staircase to the huge games room – Nido The Walls has more social and study space than any other student accommodation in Southampton. Kick start a table football tournament or sit back on the easy chairs and watch the flat screen TV. Later, whip up something to eat in your private room’s designer kitchen before joining friends to watch a blockbuster in the cinema room.
Jump out of your double bed in the morning, ready for a workout in the state-of-the-art gym. Freshen up in your private bathroom, put on a new outfit clean from the laundry and head out, grabbing your bike from the on-site storage and pedalling to class. Afterwards, get stuck into your assignment in the modern, shared study room or at your desk – there’s free Wi-Fi throughout the building so you can choose whichever location works best for you.
