However tempting it may be to walk home after a night out or late-night study session, it is never the right or safe answer to do so! There are many taxi companies in Southampton, and also the Univeristy's safety bus.
"The Safety Bus is a service to help make sure you get home from our venues on campus safely! It runs every night from outside the Students' Union (Building 40 on the Highfield Campus) and will drop you off right at your door! The safety bus costs just £1.50 per journey as long as you live within 3 miles of campus.
If you live in Southampton more than 3 miles from campus, we'll take you back to your door for £3; and if you're based in Winchester we'll drive you back to your door for only £4.50 after the WSA Shuttle Bus has finished at 23:00
If you don't have enough money to pay for the Safety Bus on the night, then you can also hand over your student ID card for the journey and come to the Students' Union reception the next day to pay for your ticket and reclaim your ID."
