Situated at the very top of the building, these cosy studios have the best views of the city. And with only a small bunch of neighbours to share the floor, these are perfect for peace and quiet (and did we mention the views?!).
Super roomy and with (even more) incredible views, enjoy living the high life in the most exclusive student rooms in Portsmouth city. You've only got a few neighbours, and there are only a few flats going, so be quick and snap one up.
This super-sized studio will not disappoint. There's loads of space for shoes or activities, so whatever your style we've got you sorted. For those of you who love a good view, we have plenty of Deluxe Studios on the upper floors too!
