Today I attended the official opening by The Rt Hon John Denham MP, of the new Southampton University Mayflower Halls student accommodation. The two Southampton Universities are an integral part of Southampton’s economy but they do put an extra strain on housing. The new halls which have over 1100 rooms will not only help to regenerate a part of the city which has been derelict for years but will relieve some of the pressure on the surrounding family housing in the city. 

Not only is the new accommodation clean, spacious and safe, it has fantastic views across the city.
