10 Gifs That Accurately Describe Being A Student At Southampton University

Being a student at Southampton University gives you a wide range of emotions. We've put together a list of GIFs that describe some.

Ah, Southampton…a city which boasts not one but two universities; the esteemed Solent and, of course, Southampton University itself. Day to day life here can be difficult to summarise with City life, two campuses and the joys of Portswood all considered – so we have compiled a list of 10 gifs which most accurately describe what student life at the University of Southampton is really like.

1. When you make it to your first 9AM of the semester (especially if you’re living in Portswood)

Yes, I may be 15 minutes late. Yes, I’m still wearing last nights clothes and yes, you may never see me here again … but I actually made it, and that in itself is an achievement.

7. After paying £3 for a ticket to the Union Cinema instead of selling your soul for a ticket at Showcase
