Southampton students are the MOST sociable in the country

We came top of the list for the students who socialise the most.


It’s official, we are cheap! NatWest have claimed Southampton students have the 4th cheapest weekly expenditure on alcohol. We only spend an average of £5.81 per week on drinks compared with the overall weekly average at £6.85! Go on, have a Sobar Quad to celebrate!

NatWest’s Student Living Index 2016 has also revealed that we spend more money going out than we do buying clothes and shoes! We spend a reported £6.51 on average going out per week but only £5.06 on clothes and shoes. We definitely have our priorities right!
