Austen House

The Student Housing Company



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.


  • An ensuite room in a 4- or 5-bed shared flat – ideal if you want to socialise a lot and make new friends right away
  • A standard room in a 2-bed apartment, which would be perfect for sharing with a friend, or if you’d prefer a more chilled-out atmosphere
  • A studio, which you’ll have all to yourself!

You’ll get a double bed no matter which option you choose, so you can always get a good night’s rest when you need it (before an exam, after a night out, or whenever).


We take care of virtually everything for you, so you can move in and start enjoying the good life right from the off. Here’s what your rent covers:

  • Your water, gas and electricity
  • High-speed broadband and Wi-Fi
  • Your heating (which is a lifesaver in a coastal city like this!)
  • Contents insurance
  • 24-hour security
  • Access to the on-site laundry facilities (super-convenient)
  • Maintenance service
  • Post and parcel service
