Southampton has always been a great place to party and the Solent university flats have always been a great place to make friends but who would of known its one of the happiest cities in the country. A new study has revealed that Southampton came eighth in a survey of the UK’s happiest neighbours.

To come to this conclusion more than 2000 residents in the UK were asked how well they get on with the people who live next door and found that more than 83 per cent of people in the UK have had a neighbour go out of their way to help them. The study reported that the happiest neighbours lived in Preston while Southampton was the only city in Hampshire to break into the top ten.

Urba-life have build two Solent student accommodation buildings in Southampton and are in the process of building the third. Our third building, Marland House, is located in the heart of Southampton and is only 30 seconds away on foot from the  Southampton Solent University campus, whilst The University of Southampton is easily accessible by taking a short UniLink bus ride. After having a very busy year we were delighted to of red this new study as we believe Southampton is a happy place to live due many communal events taking place across the year.

Overall Urba-life would like to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
