Student Property Southampton
In most student towns, there are very clearly defined areas where students choose to live, and Southampton is no exception. These areas are usually defined by proximity to university campuses, to amenities and shopping and, of course, to restaurants, bars and clubs.
Most first-year students will live in university halls of residence which have generally been built where there was suitable space for building on a large scale. Accommodation in halls is usually provided for either 30 or 42 weeks a year and at the end of each semester students are required to vacate their rooms and usually return home.
The second and subsequent years at university provide the opportunity to rent a house in a residential area popular with students and where local businesses owe their livelihood to the student residents. Generally these areas are within walking distance of university campuses, or at most no more than a short bike or bus ride away.
In Southampton the majority of students will rent these properties for 52 weeks a year, so their house becomes a home rather than simply a place to stay. Many POSH PADS tenants have stayed in their properties for 3 and even 4 years consecutively; many choose to find jobs in Southampton during the university holidays so their house is used all year round; and some tenants remain with Posh Pads even after they have graduated!
POSH PADS exercises careful discretion when it comes to purchasing properties. All POSH PADS properties have been carefully selected for their great desirability - characterful period properties, sizeable rooms, good-sized gardens, free parking wherever possible - and also for their superb locations - being situated in the most sought-after roads, proximity to university campuses and all the local shopping, amenities and entertainment.
POSH PADS tenants are mostly students at either of Southampton?s two universities.
