City and campus
Portsmouth isn’t just a great place to study – it’s a great place to live. Steeped in history but with a modern vibe, it is an island city that's open to the world. There’s inspiration round every corner, and beaches and boutiques just a few steps away.

Everything’s close by in Portsmouth. In the course of a day you could go from the deck of a historic ship, to a bustling shopping street, browse in a gallery and relax on the beach. The city’s flat – perfect for cycling – and it’s easy to get around. By night, the city comes alive with gigs, bars, restaurants, clubs and shows.

Our compact campus is threaded through the heart of the city - rubbing shoulders with cafes and venues, yet just a stone’s throw from green spaces and beaches. It’s home to students from all walks of life, and from all around the world. We’re constantly investing in new facilities to help them fulfil their ambitions. Ready to join them?
