Start your day by browsing the preloved clothes and exhibits on display at local favourite The Art House, just a short walk from your new student accommodation – don’t forget to refuel with their speciality vegan platter before you leave. In the afternoon, drive to the nearby New Forest National Park to breathe in some fresh air on a bike ride, or hold on tight as you try your hand at horse riding. On weekends you can travel slightly further to Ellingham Lake, where you can get your heart pumping by waterskiing or wakeboarding. In the evening, sample Southampton’s nightlife with cocktails at the Orange Rooms, or catch a show at the Mayflower Theatre.
When you live at Orion Point, you’ll be based just over five minutes on foot from Southampton Solent University. If you have a car, you can drive to your classes at the University of Southampton in around 10 minutes, and park in the secure facility back home after a busy day. Walk 30 minutes to the campus if you don’t have your own car, or pick up your bike from the bike storage and get there in just 12 minutes.
Every morning you’ll wake up feeling well-rested at Orion Point. Start your day with a quick session in the free fitness centre on site, and drop your sports kit off at the communal laundry facility after you’ve had a good workout. Then, swing by the reception to check if you have any packages before you head off to class for the day.
Back at Orion Point after your lectures, you can whip up a meal in your kitchenette or kitchen, or persuade friends to join you for burrito night at nearby restaurant Mexigo. Chill out afterwards in the common room back home, or in front of your favourite shows on the TV. Then, tackle the work you have due the next day, using the high-speed Wi-Fi to do your research for class.
All of your utilities are included in your rent at Orion Point, so you won’t need to worry about getting any unexpected bills. Personal contents insurance is also included, though you won’t have to worry about your belongings going missing thanks to the 24-hour security and CCTV in your new student accommodation. But if you need any help at all, you’ll find on-site management and maintenance teams on hand to sort out any problems.
