The ancient capital of England, Winchester is located in the South of England, not far from the coast. It is a beautiful city with a population of 60,000. Winchester boasts many fine, old buildings which remind students of its ancient past, yet it has a thriving modern cultural and commercial life. London is 65 miles away by train or bus.
HOUSING & MEALS
International students live in catered dormitories. Although there are some double rooms on campus, you generally have single rooms and share common space with British or international floormates. You will have two meals per day in the university cafeteria. For your additional meal, you'll find groceries at Sainsburys, Somerfields and the farmers' market, as well as many restaurants in the city.

All students at the University are automatically members of the Students Union, which has its own Council and is represented on the University's main decision-making bodies. The SU elects an Overseas Student Welfare Officer each year who arranges 3-4 day trips for international students each term.
My experience in Winchester was most amazing! It was very eye-opening and I feel like I have a much better world view and broadened perspective on life and foreign cultures. I was able to try so many new experiences that I would never have been able to or feel comfortable trying back in the United States. Coming to Winchester has helped me become more confident, independent and responsible. I feel like I know myself better and have a better grasp of what the world can offer me and what I want out of the world. I have made so many connections with people not just in England, but all over the world and the United States. -Emily
Winchester is a great starting point for more adventures. Stonehenge, Bath, London and the southern English coast are easy day trips. Or head to London, hop the Eurostar (chunnel train) in the morning and be in Paris by afternoon!
