Wessex Lane Halls of Residence

Wessex Lane is a large complex of halls which provides a more traditional student village feel, with a wide range of room types, vibrant social scene and close proximity to the popular student area of Portswood.

The halls complex is divided into two main sites; Montefiore, and the part-catered Connaught halls.

Please note - Major refurbishment works are due to take place in some Montefiore flats during 2020. During this time there will be an increased level of building noise on the site. None of the buildings recieving this upgrade will be occupied during these works and all work is likely to take place during daytime hours. The newly refurbished Boiler House common area is also in the final stages of its upgrade and is due to open sometime in March. To view an artists impression of the new area please look at the image carousel below.
