Renting a House or Flat Share in Portsmouth & Southampton

Viewings:     General Enquiries:

Southampton and Portsmouth are very popular university cities and welcome a growing number of students every year. Student numbers increase at a faster rate than the provision of places to live so there is a huge demand for quality student accommodation.

The end of every calendar year sees an intense scramble among students as the best accommodation is sought for the following academic year. The demand is such that for the year 2014-2015, Posh Pads signed 90% of its available houses before Christmas 2013.


In recent years the standard of student accommodation generally has improved dramatically. Posh Pads has been instrumental in raising the bar. The provision of smart Posh Pads houses and the maintenance service provided by the “Posh Pads Works” team ensure that we have a portfolio of contented tenants who know they can rely on their landlord. We know we achieve this as our tenants tell us so.

For many Posh Pads tenants, their student house is the first property they will rent. While the procedure for renting a house is straightforward, the novelty of the situation coupled with the need to satisfy several points of view simultaneously requires an understanding approach. Posh Pads has had many years of experience in letting to students, and has a depth of knowledge which ensures that the letting process is simple and straightforward.

While Posh Pads means top-notch student accommodation, rents are in line with most other private landlords and are competitive based on what is provided. We are justly proud of our properties and eager to show them off to prospective tenants.


Posh Pads viewings are arranged by appointment with the office; each viewing is conducted by a member of the Posh Pads team. There is no “property list”; our appointments are arranged in a way that ensures that notice is given to our current tenants and that due consideration is paid to their schedules.

In order to secure a Posh Pad it is important to be organised and have a cohesive and committed tenant group. This will facilitate the important co-ordination of people and information necessary prior to the signing of a contract. Before a house is decided upon, questions of a practical nature will arise. Below you will find answers to the most common of these queries.

Testimonials & Reviews

Natalia S :: Westridge Road

I would just like to thank Posh Pads for how accommodating they have been with us. The house we rent from Posh Pads is incredible value for money offering the largest rooms I have seen. The house has been well maintained, and is in fabulous condition, from carpets through to bathrooms. It is in a good location and is really secure. The greatest thing about it is that it came fully furnished; this has allowed us not use our own money to outlay the expense.
The service we have received has been of a highly professional standard; when our fridge broke, we had a new one within 48 hours! This is brilliant! I do not know any friends whose landlords have done this for them at such a speedy rate. Also when we have had a change in housemates, Posh Pads have always facilitated the deposits being paid back, and contracts redrawn, which means less stress for us. The staff are always friendly and polite, and follow up with maintenance calls.
We love using Posh Pads, so much so that, if we did decide to move to another location, we would use them as our first point of contact. Otherwise I know myself and the other girls who have been renting the house for over a year now, plan on staying for as long as long as possible!
Brilliant service and a wonderful team, I would highly recommend Posh Pads to anyone looking for accommodation.
