Following the National Student Survey 2015, Winchester ranked 4th in England for overall satisfaction.

The culture of the university is informal, with an emphasis on providing a supportive community for students through promotion of start-up businesses and social entrepreneurship, as well as personal support in student study and life. Winchester has seen a great amount of development in recent years, with work on brand-new accommodation and an award-winning student union, which achieved one of the best rankings in the National Student Survey, being completed.
