Highfield is a suburb of Southampton, which lies in the south of England in the county of Hampshire and is situated at the Solent coastline. Highfield is mainly a residential area for students, as the main campus of Southampton University falls within its boundaries.
The University of Southampton’s arts faculty is located at Avenue Campus, Highfield, as is its archaeology building. Students leaving home for the first time find a rich night and social life waiting for them at Southampton and the surrounding area, which is close to the New Forest National Park and various other attractions, making it a great place to live. The New Forest Wildlife Park and Reptile Centre, the lovely castle at Beaulieu, the pretty seaside resort of Lymington and Exbury Gardens also make for excellent day trips for families, which makes Southampton a sought-after city at the Hampshire coast.
Being away from parents and family can, however, be quite a strain for some students, who lose their way without parental guidance and their support network of childhood friends. Binge drinking at the weekend is a common occurrence among student populations, not just in Southampton, but all over the country. More often than not, young people end up at the Accident and Emergency departments of their local hospitals, where their stomachs need to be pumped or they’ll die of alcohol poisoning.
Self-inflicted harm does not qualify a person for making a compensation claim in Highfield. However, if you left home on your bike to cycle to Avenue Campus and a careless motorist knocked you off your bike, you could make a compensation claim in Highfield and expect to receive compensation for your injuries.
