If you are looking for accommodation for the conference, the closest areas to try and book hotels would be in the Portswood area. The closest hotel to the campus is Elizabeth House Hotel ( Other options are the Travel Lodge, 144 Lodge Road, Southampton, SO14 6QR ( or Highfield House Hotel, 119 Highfield Lane, Southampton, SO17 1AQ (

If you are unable to find accomodation in the Portswood area, other suitable options would be in the Shirley area or the Southampton City Centre area. If you do find accommodation in the City Centre or in Portswood, we have a very good University bus service called UniLink that drops you either at the door of Avenue Campus or within five minutes of the campus. You can view an interactive map of the bus routes and stops for Avenue Campus by clicking this link.

If you want to travel from Shirley to campus via bus, we recommend that you use the BlueStar or First bus services to travel into the City Centre and use the UniLink bus services to get you to Avenue Campus.
