Southampton is a great student town, there's plenty of nightlife and shopping however not much else to do other than this. They've just build a new complex with lots of reateuants and an amazing cinema which is cool. It's a little frustrating that we're by the sea but there's no beach, Southampton is a lot of industry. However I would highly reccomend the university as a great place for students to be. The uni is great and has loads to to get involved in and tons going on. People are friendly and there's a nice community.
