LSI Portsmouth's Brand New Self-catering Student House - right next to school!
We are really happy to be about to launch our brand new self-catering student house, St Michael’s, which will become available for our students in just a few weeks.
As you can see from the photos below, the house has been beautifully redecorated and furnished and everything in it is brand new.
We know it’s going to be a lovely place for our students to live in and it will have a live-in House Manager to keep things well organised for them too. There will be twelve study bedrooms for students, all of which have their own private shower and washbasin, plus there will be two bedrooms with full en suite bathrooms and there are five communal shared toilets in the house. There is a large kitchen/dining area with 2 large fridge-freezers, 2 washing machines, 2 tumble dryers, 2 sinks, 2 cookers, a large dining table and sofa and a 50-inch smart TV. Also there is a storage room. The house will have free WiFi and the house is exclusively for LSI Portsmouth students.
Better than this, it will be ideal for those students who - how shall we put it? – are very keen sleepers and don’t like to walk far to get school. Yes, we do know you are out there! The house is right behind the school and literally 50 metres or 1 minute’s walk from the front entrance, a really great plus point for those students who like to be independent, cook for themselves, but live in a nice mixed, multi-national environment with other LSI students from all over the world really near their school.
‘Four years ago, we didn’t have any year-round independent self-catering accommodation to offer our students at all, just homestay and summer university residences,’ says Andrew, our Principal, ‘then we took on two lovely student houses, both great places and very popular with our students, but about 20 minutes’ walk from school. The next phase of our development of offering independent self-catering accommodation to our students, more and more of whom are preferring this independent way of living with other students, is to have houses which are much nearer to school. This house couldn’t be closer, as it is literally in the next building to school! For our extra sleepy students, they can roll out of bed and be in school in 1 minute - if they move fast!’ he says. ‘Early next year, we will be getting an even larger self-catering residence just 200 metres from school, which will really be great for our students and give us even more rooms right near school. We want to keep our students happy and give them the best options and we think these two houses will be great for them!’
