Student accommodation in Portsmouth

Portsmouth is a small city with a big community. You’re never more than a ten-minute walk from the waterfront – in fact, everything’s close by. Expect innovative, indie businesses and a cultural scene that’s never sleepy. From restaurants to art, there’s always something new popping up. After hours, the city centre is where it’s at for pubs, clubs and entertainment. Got exams coming? Revise in the sun in Victoria Park or head down to Southsea Common, also home to the Victorious music festival.

  • Catherine House

    There’s a life beyond your studies and staying here, you can live it large and happy!

    Firstly, travel-time to Portsmouth Uni is just seven minutes. Max. The big green of Victoria Park is just over the road and a shopping centre and supermarket two minutes’ walk away. With the essentials taken care of, how you spend the rest of your time is down to you. The city centre gives you plenty of choice. Or hit a nearby beach when the weather hots up. For even broader horizons, the main train station is right next door.

Our space

Catherine House is our student accommodation in Portsmouth and it's right in the city centre, so everything you need is virtually on your doorstep!

If you're the sociable type, choose our flat-share option: an ensuite room in a four to six-bed apartment. Or for more privacy, there are studios available too, in various sizes, as well as one-bed flats with incredible views. In fact, they're some of the best student housing in Portsmouth but they sell out fast, so let us know fast if you’re interested!

Or, if you're the kind of person who likes the best of the best, check out our penthouse studio apartments, a far cry from your average student halls!


We’re committed to making your stay at uni as comfortable as possible. That's why we give you plenty of choice when it comes to student accommodation. But we also make sure your social life is happy too with regular events to help you get to know people. There's also a games area and our stunning Sky Lounge, with its amazing views. Use it as a study space or somewhere to chill as the sun goes down. Just make sure you use it, because it needs to be seen to be believed!

Student accommodation in Portsmouth pops up in locations across the city, but not all of them are as convenient as ours. Catherine House is very central, close to Portsmouth & Southsea train station and the Cascade shopping centre.

The University of Portsmouth is only a seven-minute stroll away, and the University of Portsmouth Dental Academy is just a few minutes more.

Why choose Portsmouth?

Don't be put off by the city centre’s island location or small(ish) size. This is as far from 'remote coastal outpost' as you can get!

Portsmouth is a city to entertain you, whether you want a good meal out, a boutique shopping experience, time on the history trail, or just the chance to do nothing in the sun on Southsea Common. And going for student housing in Portsmouth means you get to hang out at the Pyramids Centre: a top spot for music, comedy and sports.

Combine that with bars, restaurants, cafes, and all your favourite high-street stores, and you've got just the right combo of atmos, heritage and a 21st-century student experience!
