What is Urba Life?

We are a company based in the coastal city of Southampton, which aims to provide student accommodations to the students of Southampton Solent University and the University of Southampton. We own three buildings, all of which are located in key areas for students.

Those buildings are:

  • Marland House
  • Queens Gate
  • The Court Yard

Marland House is located in the very heart of Southampton, perfectly situated for students looking to enjoy Southampton as a city to the very best of their abilities. It is also perfect for Southampton Solent University students, as the University is only a couple minutes’ walk away.

Queens Gate is also located very near to the centre of Southampton, being just around the corner from Oxford Street and Ocean Village, where some of the best bars and restaurants are available.

The Court Yard is perfectly situated for students looking for accommodation near to the University of Southampton, as well as being near to a number of shops, cafes and bars.

Student satisfaction is incredibly important to us as a company, and as such we have done, and continue to do, everything in our power to ensure that every student is happy with their studio and the facilities provided.

Sunil Shah, the owner of the company, spends the majority of every week working and moving between the properties themselves. This brings him into direct contact with the students frequently, and he makes an effort not only to handle any issues or complaints they might have, but also to remember every student he meets by name!

Should you be interested in seeing any of the student accommodations, they are open to viewings most of the week. Should you be unable to come in for any reason, a Skype or Facetime call can be organised, where Jack Barnett will happily walk you through the building and its facilities.

The main aim of Urba Life Southampton is to provide safe, secure and luxurious studio apartments that students will be more than happy to spend their time in. It is our solid belief that every student desires hassle free living when at University so they can focus on their studies and having a great time in Southampton.

In order to do that we make sure that everything is covered for you, including an all-inclusive rental price, meaning you don’t have to worry about paying for any utility bills or other extras. Through us you will have unlimited high-speed Wi-Fi, electricity, gas, heating and hot water without having to worry about setting these utilities up or the bills that come with them.

We also provide a number of facilities that you can use beyond the studio apartment. This includes a common room with a TV, a pool table and work area to relax in and socialise with other tenants, a free gym for the use of our tenants, a secure bike storage area and limited car parking facilities (by prior arrangement at the time of booking).   All our studios have a private en-suite bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen with a double bed and plenty of storage space.
