How to use SASSH

SASSH lets you sign up and search for student houses, flats and lodgings across the whole of Southampton. If you are a student looking for somewhere to live or a landlord who would like to rent out your property then sign up today and start browsing.

Students - If you already have a university email address we would recommend that you sign up with it. For new users signing up with a personal email, an extra level of authentication is required and this can cause a delay in your account being activated.

Once your account has been verified you can start looking at what is currently on offer. Be sure to check back regularly as new properties are listed frequently.

Please note: do not make any payments before viewing a property or signing a contract. Make sure you are always given a receipt for any money given.

Please note that SASSH and its partner organisations, Southampton City Council, The University of Southampton and Solent University accept no liability for any of the  accommodation listed on this website. Inclusion on this site is not an endorsement of either the property listed or the private provider but simply shows that they have signed up to the SASSH standards and that no major disputes or unresolved complaints are listed for that provider.
