Welcome to Stanhope House, Portsmouth. Come on in!

Where you want to be

So you picked Portsmouth? Us too! Stanhope House is our brand spanking new accommodation, all ready for September 2019. You’ll find us slap bang in the heart of the city, just a 5 minute walk (or 3 minute dash) from the University campus. Right opposite Victoria Park, the shops and rail station are on our doorstep, and the Student Union and University library are less than 10 minutes’ walk away. We’re the striking 19-storey, 256-bed building - you can’t miss us, and you won’t want to.

Find the space for you

Everyone’s different. So whether you want a studio or apartment all to yourself, or fancy sharing a 4 - 6 bed apartment, we can accommodate you. Whichever you choose, you’ll get a comfy ¾ double bed, study area, superfast broadband, and use of all the incredible facilities on-site. (more on that later.) Every room also comes with its very own fully kitted out en-suite. So you can hop out of bed and into the shower. No queuing, no lugging your wash bag around, and no quibbles about cleaning. Our shared flats have a shared kitchen, with washer/dryer, dishwasher, huge fridge/freezer, and plenty of space to relax in front of the TV (yes we provide this too!) with your flatmates. Fancy looking out across the city and sea? Choose a room on the higher floors - the sights are stunning from 19 floors up.
